Cure promised 
for A500P 
problems 

John Butters is told that games will 
be rewritten for tKe macKlne 



WHAT'S 




INCOMPATIBILITY problems have 
syriaced with Commodore's latest 
Amiga just weeks after Ihe conri' 
puter started early shipping, but 
UK software houses have pledged 
to cure difficulties, 

Clairni that about half of the 
existing Amiga leisure software 
base will not run on the A500 Plus 
have been backed by tests carried 
out by Amiga Computing which 
have found many games, old and 
new, incompatible. 

Serious applications are less 
troublesome but it is too early to 
list which packages will not load. 
One shock is that shareware pro- 
grams not written to Commodore 
guidelines seem to largely escape 
the problem. 

B-ut Commodore are reluctant to 
admit that the difficulties exist, 
Spokesman Andrew Bali says that 
developers were sent details of the 
fi.mn'1 plans more than a year ago 
and have had sufficient time to 
write software to guidelines. H e 
says that while there could be

problems with public domain soft- 
ware that is not writter^ to 
Commodore's rule book, commer- 
cial packages should be 99 per 
cent trouble-free. 

Games houses are holding their 
hands up and taking the blame, 
saying that as soon as they receive 
models of the computer ail Amiga 
products will be made compatible, 
Domark's latest flight shoot-'em-up 
Super Miti-29 Fulcrum is just one 
program unable to run on the 
machine, 

A spokesman confirmed that 
Commodore had sent notes advis- 
ing of new programming rules but 
said they were unable to imple- 
ment them because a machine was 



Super A3000 to have CD 

A COMMODOftt irsslikf has revealed lh4t the giant plan to include a CD-ROM 
ctr)v« in th«ir nifw AMCC being developed in the Sutes J 

The Rrm have already tonfirnied exclusiv«^ Amiga Computing reports that tfW_ 
tompuler h to hjive the failer 6a(M0 processor tWp tty the end of nest year. 

It wilt niflke the computer jp to five Limes faster thjin the existing; machi«« 
and the Information received Ihis month addi to growing ipeculation that th 
tQp end Amiga <Quld be r&named, pOSSJbly as lh« MOOQ. 

The company are about to rHsise ar add-on CO ROM drive fof Ihdr AS! 
but It win not fit to other computers in the rar>ge. Since an intreasing Htnout 
of ioftware ii being released on CD, the AJOOO will soon need a CD-ROl 

option. 

The new specif icatksns rumoured lor the machine match thos* planned 1 
Atari for their TT computer - the nearest competitor for the AiOOO, Atari 
falcon will alio have a 68040 chip and a CD ROIW drive. 

In the US^ the AJOOO is outselling the A2M0. with 15 per cent of machhl 
being employed far presentation creation. Commodore are claiming more 
than two thirdi share of the professional video computer market, 

A Commodore spoltesman said he was unaware ol a CD ROM plan far th* 



not available for testing software. 

However, the linn said that they 
- . were unaware of the problem 
ind added that it would not 
take long to revise. Domark 
say Commodore are better 
th|n mmt manufacturers in giving 
details of planned changes. 
Gremlin Graphics said the reason 
for the problems with their latejt 
programs was that while new 
guidelines were sent from

board casing naming the computer 
a? a Commodore A500 Pliis, and a 
small Commodore logo. The pack- 
aging also lists the new machine by 
name. 

Inside it has one megabyte of 
memory on its motherboar and the 
enhanced chip set, and is supplied 
with a copy of the latest operating 
system, Workbench 2, Kickstart 
\2.0A is included on ROM Along 
with the Super Agnes chip this is 
believed to be the cause of the 
problems. Above-forecast saieis of 
the Cartoon Classics pack led to 
standard ASOO shortages and a sur- 
prise early release for the Plus, say 
Commodore. The official on-saie 
date remains as "after Christmas", 
for the computer, wbich sells in the 
United States as the ASOO 
Professional- 
One industry expert com- 
mented: "It's inevitable that this 
type of thing happens when a 
machine is updated. Commodore 
have to make changes to keep the 
Amiga up to date in this fast-mov- 
ing market."

THf CHAIRMAN of tfie independ.irtt

for dealers to drop the Amiga range 
from their shi^lves. He has sent a let-

However, Commodores spokes-

ing giant Dai-Nippon. 

Other firms intereited in joining the

Commodore's Andrew &a(l says the 
move will establish a Japanese market

Building the power 

AN OPTICAL drive giving 1 28 megabytes of storage capacity heads a line-up of 
rtew Amigi prsducts due from Power Computing (0234 843388) during the next 
few mortthJ, 

Developed Jor the A200Q, it comes as an intemaJ or external drive and enaWes 
data to be stored on fuilj,' newriteaWe 3.5ln optical cartridges, Manufactured by 
computer giant n*A it has a seek rate of &i millBeconds. 

The intemal version which fits site the 3-25 drive bsj' costs £999 and the e«ter- 
rtal model w«h its own power sijpply is £1 195*, Each cartridge costs £36, CVP SCSI 
interfaces can also tie bought for £1 99. 

The second product from the Bedfordshire firm wfll be the first hand icannef to 
be priced at under £100. With an auto-sefling reicJution of up to 400 dots per 
inchj Power Scanrwr will support true greyscal* and will be built to enable a iprinter 
10 abo be connected to the Amiga. With software, it will cost £99 and goes, on sale 
shortly, 

Developen have just started work on a "really cheap" eight megabyte external 
RAM hoard with, a thru port. The Power RAM toard should be on sale iX the begin- 
ning of November and while lis price stiSI needs to be fiaed, indications are that it 
will sell for £249. A two megabyte version is expected to cost £99. 

&y January the company's 1 ,44 meg-aijyte floppy efisk drive should be ready for 
launch. The external device will be switchabie between SaOK and 1,44 megabytes 
and its price still needs to be finalised.

changes 18 to 21 months ago and 
had been provided with complete 
versions of Workbench 2 on disk 
three months ago, 

Bui Bishop complained: "I think 
its going to be a frightening, daunt 
ing task this Christmas. From a 
retailer's point of view selling hard- 
ware artd software, it's heads I win 
tails yoo lose. There's no way we can 
get through this one without major 
hassle." 

But alleged infofnpatibility is only 
part of the upset and the situation 
over the warranty will have the 
biggest affect or* sales he says. 

"What can we dfl with a situation 
that's already happened? We are 
totally reliant on our m^any failure's 
support - we haven't had that from 



Commodore since the end of |ur*. 
We just gel hassles - they've taken 
an Amstrad approach and we all 
know where that got Amstrad, 

"We are deitocking Commodore 
as fast as is possible and I know other 
NASCR members are doing very simi- 
lar. Commodore - this could be their 
last Christmas of any know. We can- 
not afford to stock Commodore." 

Commodore maintain they are 
operating a fair dead on arrival pol- 
icy. 

Andrew Ball said: "We have gone 
a long way to revise the DOA policy. 

"Since we decided to change our 
policy we have spent a lot of

Multimedia made easier 

AMIGA multimedia users are to get the quality care they need to make 
multimedia decisions, say Commodore, tt's all due to a new deal making 
the UK's largest Indeperident computer supplier the exclusive top-end 
Amiga distribulor. 

As Commodore try to grab the growing multimedia market the link with 
P k P will be backed with an advertising campaign and a training pro- 
gramme for qualifying dealers. 

"I am absolutely delighted at this major opportunity for our two compa- 
nies to pool our experience and work together to ensure that multimedia 
becomes the reality It deserves to be," said P U P s general manager 
Patricia Way. 

'The Commodore Amiga 3000 with AmigaVlsion and the CDTV are a 
cost-effective combination that can make major contributions to any com- 
pany's effectiveness and producthrity."

BT axe Micronet 

LACK of profit is being given as the reason far rtcent closurie o* British Telecom's 
online Micronet computer magazine. 

Before the announcement, BT had stopped signing up new subscriben and 
sent recommendations that members transfer to the giant CompuServe Sylt&m, 
for which they receive f r* e registf^tiort. 

The servite never met eitpected memberstiip levels despite charges being cut 
this Apnl in an attempt to keep it afloat It ctesed with littSe more than 1 ^ ,000 
subscribeti - well below viable targets. 

One of the main features in f^^icronet wai an Amiga section which was 
updated daily with news, views and reviews tfom all over the world. Letters could 
be sent via telephone lines enabling uieti to debate topics ar*d get help from fiei- 
low users, Fomief Micronet editor-in-chief Paul f*eeds sirmply offered:, "it's the 
end o^a dream. " 



Star price cuts 

COMFIDENCE in the economy has kd 
to immediate price fails for printer 
giant Star's range of 24-pin models. 

The LC24 line sees prices drop by 
up to £20 and the company have also 
slashed the cost of their four page per 
minute laser printers, 

"We are now seeing a significant 
Increase in s^lei following the summer 
lull as businesses become more confi- 
dent in tlw economy,'" eitplained Star's 
Roger Bayiey. "The impravemenls in 
the price/performance ratios will only 
twlp increase demand for these models 
in prefefence,'^ 



Beginners get help 



BtGINNERS interested in learning more about the Amiga are 
set to benefit bom a new training scheme announced by a 
rtew High Wycombe-based firm, 

||,C (0494 B8J347) with more than 12 years, experience in 
yie marl(et art to launch a series of 12 disits containing infor- 
mation about the computer. 

The one disi; per month course will taiie subscribers from 
the basics through software, hardware and design, and give 
hints and tips. Regular features will include a glossary 



of computer terms, questions and answers and software train- 
ing. 

'There are hundreds and hundreds of companies offering 
PC and Macintosh training but none for the Amiga," said JJC 
boss |ohn Thompson, "We hiw been io the Commodore mar- 
ket for some time and we feel that Amiga uiers often just play 
games without realising the machine's full potential/ 

Individual disks can be bought for £5, A one-year njljing 
course costs £50,

Features added 
to RocGen 

THE successor to the best selling 
ftocGen genlock is due for imminent 
release from Silica Systems (i]81-309

In addition to the earlier product, 
RocCen Plus supports fiCB and video 
through, keying, optional Chroma key, 
keyhole effects, improved styling and 
far Ibetter genlocking quality. 

ft supports highef image mixing 
qualily than its predecessor, with inter- 
nal circuits modified to give higher tol- 
erance levels. Better qualitj? 
components have also been used to 
improve peffofmance. 

The ability to key a coiouf anrf spec- 
ify it means chosen colours can be 
replaced with the genlock signal - simi- 
lar to the facilities used by television 
production teams producing weather 
forecast bulletins, where the presen- 
ter's clothing is "invisible". 

"RocCen Plus now matches gen- 
locks costing several times more in 
terms of quality and image stalsili^," 
says Silica's A^dy Leoning .

.Opyspocus 

Opie software pfoduct that garnered a 
'lot oi attention was Inovatronics' Opus 
Directory utility. Incredibly ionfi^- 
urable, with full ARexx support and 
built in animation, pictune, and sound 
players, Opus was making a lot of CLI- 
haters very happy. Progressive 
Peripherals k Software's DIskMaster II 
provided opus with some stiff competi- 
tion, though, with its multi-window 
interface. 

The product that excited me the 
most, though, was Voyager, the 



Dynamic Sky Smulator from Visionary 
Software- Like VRU's Distant Suns, 
Voyager lets you plot the sky frofn any 
point an the earth's surface- 

The program also includes a com- 
plete database of NA5A and E5A space 
probes, so you can plot the paths of 
historic mlsiions like Voyager 2 and 
Magdlan. If you have any interest in 
astronomy or ipace e^iploratJon, this 
program is a m ust. 

Probably the only disappointment at 
AmiEKpo was that AmigaDOS 2,0 
enhancer kits weren't available for sale. 
The continuing saga of The Operating 
System that Wouldn't Ship may be 
drawing to a close^ thoijgh- A few deal- 
ers in Pennsylvania now have 2,0 
Enhancef kits. Commodore itill hakfln't 
told dealers their retail price, so they 
can't be sold. 

One notable absence from the show 
who' were scftedule to debut the new 
5.0 for the Amlga^ and give 
the keynote speech opening the 
show. However, the booth was empfy, 
and Commodore Applicatiorvs 
and Technical Support's (CATS} Jeff 
Scherb stepped in to do the keynote 
address. 

A company spokesman claimed that 
there wwe problems with the program 
' it's itill in Alpha test - that made it 
unsuitable for showing at AmiExpo. 
Industry scuttlebutt had it that is wait- 
ing for Commodore to commit funds 
for development assistance before 
they'll commit themselves to finishing 
the new version.

If you uie youf Amiga for iriything 
othef than g^mei then chancer are 
you'll need a printBr. After all, a 
uwrdprocei^cir \i not much ute if you 
can't get the docjments you type orta 
paper, right? It'i i little imprAClical to 
have to keep booting up Dfaint to look 
at your arttstic masterpieces when they 
could he Bl|j-tack«d to your wall. 5cr 3 
printer is obviously a pretty essential 
piece of kit fw your more s«rioui Amiga 
owner. 

Therefore, it's a pity that out of afl 
tJw piecei of hardware you'll evef buy, 
printers are guaranteed to be the bane 
of your life, feed jams, faulty drivers, 
indecipherable msnuals, wrong page 
siffls, the liit is efidless. Luckily, not all 
printers are ttie Lucifers of ttie com- 
puter world, iri fact, tome are pretty 
good. Before we sort the wheat from 
the chaff though, lei's just clarify a few 
terms- 

9-pin 

A 9-p«n printef is the rrtost basic design. 
It works on a .similar principfe to a type- 
writer, Jr that it print* by strikirig the 
paper through the ribbon. Characters 
are created by a system of nine pin J 
which mafcje doti on th« paper in the 
sihape of lf>E ctiaracter, hence, beNeve it 
ornot, the nam^ 9-pin. 

In draft mode the print head only 
mikes one pass over the paper. This 
means that tihe you can isi the dots 
making up each character. In near letter 
quality mode (NLQ) tf*e print head 
makes two paues oh/er the paper filling 
in the spates betwieen the dots and giv- 
ing better quality printouts. 
Unfortunately this means that 9-pin 
printer; are ve«y noisy, but (hey are aJse 
cheap. 

24-pin 

A 24-pin printer is, strangely efiough, 
like a 9-pin pfinter but with mor^ pins 
on the printhead- Thiu means that the 



printout ii gereriilly of much better 

qualrty. A 24-pin draft printout is usu' 
ally of Ihe iame quality as a 9-pin NLQ 
printout as the greater number of pins 
gives the priotoub much better resoiu- 
tion- 

24-p^n printers are also suitable for 
grsphici printing, although colour is 
really necessary for decent resutts. 

The posh ones 

If you've got some ejitia peonies knock- 
ing about then you may want to splash 
out on a more up-market printer, 
Currently rather trendy are bubblejet 
printer!. They produce printouts by 
squirting tiny gbbufes of ink onto the 
paper, rather then striking the paper, 
artd so are practically silent. 

The downside to this ii that, not 
only are they out of rea(h of most 
home owners' pockeb, but they are 
also useless for batch printirfg of 
invoic^i and bills as they cannot use 
continuous fanfold paper, or carbon 
paper. Ttiis is by the by thoughj if ymi 
want professional quality printouts and 
are willing to forit. out the extra. 

Drivers 

Before you can "dump" yOur docu- 
ments onto paper you have to make 
sure that both your Amiga and printer 
can eommufiicate properly. This is 
where a printer driver comes in. A 
printer driver is. simply a small piece of 
software that allows Amiga and pinter 
to understand each other, like an elec- 
tronic Babel ftsh. 

Most printers will work with art 
Epson, driver, whkh will come in some 
form or another with most software 
packages, or if not then a printer driver 
will be supplies) with the printer. Better 
results can be gleaned if you use a 
driver ipecifit to your printer, so be 
prepared to either scour the PD libraries 
or if you're very brave you could try 
and tijitomiie your own. 




Scores on the doors 

To help sum up eath brief review of the prlntert, we now preient on all- 
new ratings system. Each printer will be marked out of ten on four cate- 
gories and also given an overall percentage. Please note though that the 
marks given to 9-pln printer aren't really comparable to 24-pin, otherwise it 
would be B tad unfair to the poor 9-pins,. The categories are thtus: 

EASE OF US£ ..How easy Is It to get th* thing up and printing? Does the 
manual make It obvious? Does the paper get chewed up all 
the time? 

NOISE ...„,, ,,The lower the better. How noky Is It In comparison with oth- 
ers of it's type? 

OPTIONS-, [Voes It have built In fonts? How many knobs and menus are 

there? Are they easy to select? 

RESULTS At the end of the day, what dati the actual printout look 

like? Is the text clear, are the graphics indistinct? And if you 
can't figure tlnat out then you'r« reading the wrotK) maga- 
zine.

Citizen Kane 

Citizen produce a well known anil well 
respeaed rang^ of both 9-and 24-pin 
printers. Under scrutiny here are the 9- 
pin Swift 9, the popular 120D+, the 2+ 
pin 124D and the rather odd PN4S 
Notebook printer. The Citiiens were sup- 
plied by Silica Shop (081 -J09 1111). 



Swift 9 

(£222.08 Inc. VAT) 

A very efftcient 9-pin, which givei turprisingly good 
results. The rather novel menu system gives each but- 
lort about three different (■ur>CtiOT>S, This gives the Swift 
a lot n>ore options and choice than its rivals, but can 




The Seikosha 
Posse 

Seikosha produce a good range of both 9- «nd 24-pin printers, so 
we've chosen the best of both categories to cast our gaze over - the 
Seikosha SP-2000 9-pin and the Seikosha Sl-92 and SL-210 Z4-pln 
Alt Seikosha printers were supplied by Silica Shop (08V-309 1111), 




SP-2000 

(£151.58 Inc. VAT) 

me firil greal advanUge of the SP-20CiO ii 
it^ compact ilze, H ihouW m pretty snugly 
or to even the most crowded desk. It 
dotsn'l even iacrifice quality tor sLae. Tht 
rfbbon supplied is sturdy and should last 
for a good long wfiile, and the manual Is 
great. Plenty o! ctear line drawings guide 
the beginner through the initial slag«s of 
setting up, while the more technical 
minded among you can find scrface among 
the tables and lists of heK *t the batlt. 

Once set up the printer works Hrve in 
b&th draft and NtQ mode, with no 
imudges or hitcups. The only probtems 
thai were encountered were when using 
continijous fftnfold paper The paper feeds 
seemed to have trouble lining up the 
paper automatically, and when first wound 
through the paper tended to tjngle 
against the paper ba^jl lever. The problem 
Isn't seriously crippling, although it dwi 
him at a poor design, 

If you want i relatively cheap 9-pir siim- 
ply for printing out fetters, though, then 
the SP-20€O ii a pretty safe tret,

SL-92 

(£322 inc. VAT) 

II possible, this 24-pin it ever imaller than 
iti 9-pin counterpart. Predictably, its 
results are mLkCh more deiirable than the 
9-pin, and it doesn't share the SP-2IJ00's 
probterni <fiith f anfold paper. 

A pius ii the wide vanely of fonts aval- 
able from the printer itself. Each font ii 
easily ielected and the variety between 
them is enough to make e*ch one worth- 
while. It's nice and speedy when dealing 
with text, and graphici are Past too. The 
quality of graphics depends on whiit soft 
of picture you're dumping. Hi^es artwork 



tend* to he indistinct, ai black and white 
csn't really do justice to the Amiga pAlette, 
but dip art for documents is fine. 

A,% with the 5f-?DO0 the manual is very 
helpful with a fine balance of basics and ir- 
depth techy stuff. Ail in all a very efficient 
and user friendly machine.

SL-210 

(£433 inc. VAT) 

A much larger printer than the other twm 
Seikosha offspring and ii such a tad more 
powerfuL Stiit a 24-pin, but with a dis- 
tinctly more professional look and feel. Tlw 
printers selection panel, in particular, is 
very sPMrt 

Each option ii velecled by a little wheel 
ttwt tycles through the opHofls in a win- 
dow. This cuts down the need fcr unne- ' 
sponsive touch serisitive padt and those 
annoying tEO lights. 

When it comes to results, they are 
pretty much the lame as the SL-92. The 
printing is a bit faster and quieter arvd the 
whole thing just "feeli" that bit more tnjst- 
worthy than the other Seikoihas, but that's 
|usl i gut reaction, as only long terni itse 
willtetl 

Aj it stands though, this is the best oi 
the Seikosha crop and well worth a took.

fuiiion, 

Despitf that, tt\e Swift 5 is great 
printw, wpecially for i 9-pln. It's not 
quite a noisy as otHer ?-pins and givEs 
a good dear prmtout in ali of its tierce 
built in fonts, It also avoids th« prob- 
lem that the Setkosha ?-pin suffered 
with fanfdd paper by using fiat tractor 
feeds rather thian /ound ones which 
have s habit of making paper loop over 
jind tarvgle up in the printer, 

The manual is very well ihg^jght out 
an<i contains a cgmprBhenjive index 
and g^iossary to fteJp yQii through the 
jargon. The printer aUo features a 
"qjiet" mode, s feature common on 
Citi£ei> printers. It's a nice idea, e^pe- 
tially for thoie wtio are sick of the hor- 
rific screeching that dot rTtatnx printeri 
make. Unfortunately, it doesn't really 
mate that much of a difference to the 
noise lesiel, but the thought wH there. 
A great prirrter, and ddiibl/ gocd tor a

PN48 Notebook 

(£229.58 Inc. VAT) 

A very odd printer thii, ICs s^naller than 
your average disk bos! Whether or not 
this h an advantage really depi^nds on 
what tomputef you have. After all, a 
portatile printer''s a bit useless if yO\j 
haven't got a portable computet- 
Obviously, it won't work with fanfg-ld 
paper, as ttwre's tiarely enough room foe 
the prmthead inside, let alone tractor 
feedi. 

Looking beyond its gimmstky appear- 
ance^ it ii actually a pretty good printef. 
It's practically silent due to the fact that 
it's r^ot a dot matrix printer. Instead it 
prints jsing non-impact thermal transfer 
with s 4B-pin head. Apart from the 
reduction in noise this doesn't really give 
any drastic improvementi in print quality, 
but W does soiJnd imprstiive. 

The main problem with a printer of 
this size is that many features have been 
removed to keep it smaJl, There's no 
paper feeder for instance. So great care 
has to be taken to make sure that the 
paper is inserted strfflght or your pdntout

A "plus" version of one of the 
cheapest and most popular 9-pin 
printers around. Predictably., at the 
price it is not without its problems 
but as ? bijdg^t printer for the home user it's a pfetly safe bet. 

As far as printing goes, it's pretty Fait and also surprisingly quiet. For a 9-pin 
the graphics printing is also a bit of a twisty as it's not at all bad for piccieS, As a 
downside, ttie printer is a devil to get workJog as the printer head and ribbon 
guide are eKttemely close together. This means that inserting the ribbon taJies 
a lot of patience and lots of inky finger3. 

This rather cramped arrartgemerkt atto nfwans thai care must hf taken when 
loading papet, *! it can tend to tie caught by the ribbon guide and torn. It's 
not the worst printer in the world, nor is it ttve best, but for a {heap and rea- 
sonably efficient 9-pln yOu «n't go far wrong. 



124D 

(£198.58 inc. VAT) 

Basically the T 240 b a 24-pin vefsion of 
the 1 20D+. It's a cheap and cheerful 24- 
pin printer for those who want 24-pin 
quality printing for a lower price. 
Actually, to (ompare it to the 120I>+ ti a 
little unfair as it doesn't suffer fnom half 
the problems that its ?-pin chum does. 

The paper feed and control is easy 
and without hassle, and unlike the 
1 20D+ it doesn't have any feed [.ams. It's 
fast with tent and comes with only two 
built in (onts to choose from. The quality 
of the printout Is good, as would be 
expe<ted fronn a 24-pin. 

The only real problem with this 
printer is that it's vety noisy, and the 
quiet mode mates little difference, 
again. Mot really the sort of problem 
that makes it a terrible printer, but it 
could cause problems if you want to use 
it in an office environment. 

As with the other Citizen printers the 
manual is excellent and should malts the 
hardware accessible to evelybody. Ar> 
average printer for an average p^ice, and 
you can't say fairer than that.

It really has to be said - this printer loolts hauntingly like a knitting machine. 
It'i the most unprinter like printer I've ever seen, except for the Citizen 

Notebook printer that is. Gut, believe it Or not, it's a really good printer. 

There are absolutely no compatibility problems with any software, as you 
can just wire it up and print to yo*jr hearts content on any generic driver. 
Ibere is a Fujibu driver supplied with the printer, but the machine we received 
came with a driver on a PC format 5'4 inch disk. Whether or not thts applies to 
all the machine* or whether we were the victims of some sort of mail order 
slip-up we'll never know. It meeds bearing in mind though. 

The printed result is of a high quality and there are no problems with either 
cut sheet or fanfold paper. The only slight hassle is that whenever yqu enter 
"set up'" mode to select a font - of which there are seven resident, as well as 
extra heiaht lettenna - the printer

prints out a status report, which 
can be a real pain, espe<ially if 
you've jiiEl gone to great lengths 
to get your paper Irned up prop- 
erly. It's also a bit of a waste ot 
paper in these ecologically sound 
times. 

As far as niggles go, that's 
about it. A sturdy, if ugly, printer 
that shouldn't give you any trou- 
ble whatsoever. Call Fujitsu on

Canon B)-10e 

(£345) 

Ttie Canon BJ-1 Oe Eubble(et printe-r is by 
far the posheil pointer we'we got. It's pos- 
iJbJy ifhi best looking as wdl. Hi appear- 
ance is more like that 0^ ^ laptop PC tlnan 
a p'iriter. It's very compact csnd cloies up 
to form an irconspicuoui grey box. 

Itworfcj, as described before, by squifl- 
ing ink onto the paper rather Ihari usinig a 
ribbor. This has many advantages, and 
tiwy show, For a start, there's no ribbon 
Co wear out so all the f li>araete'i are ai the 
same bold quality, Quality? Tell me about 
iti Th& printouts look as though they juit 
came trorr one of thosS ultfiposh iaser 
printers- 
It's fait with text, but very ilow with 
graphics and the pitturei tend to be very 
dark. The noise level ii next to nothing, in. 
fact you rntay find yourself cfnecfcing that it 
is actually printing. 

It does have some disadvanlages. The 
price for instance, may be yjH a little too 
rnich for your average home uier, but for 
iomeone setting up a small busiines,^ it 
colW fit tfie bill, Ai with Ihe Citizen 
Notebook it doesn't hau-e ar\y tractor 
feedi, and fience no option for fanfold 
paper. It also lacks a detent ptaper feeder 
Eo keep the paper straigfit, so careful 
insertion ii required to prevent lopsided 
printout!. 

Probably tfte best quality piinler we've 
seen so it may be loo eKpeniive, but if 
you're willirkg to spend that son of mofiey 
then you won't be diiappointed-

fuss. The pnnter oftsfl takes care of

than for ywu to stick sorne paper in

pretty quiet consicFering all the print- 
head shifting thai goes on during 
graphic dumping. 

As I siid, its only real problem is its 
mamnolh iize which may mean that 
sorrte people mary have trouble find- 
ing somewhere to pJt il. 1^ you've got 
the room, then this one is state of the

LC-20 

(£159.95) 

The LC-20 is the bihy of the Star 
ran-ge, Not for nothing is its subtitle 
"MultiFont" printer. There 4re no le» 
than (our fonts rtjiding withio its tiny 
frame, and each of those can be 
printed in several other styles all at 
the preiiof a button. 

We expenenced oo problems con- 
cerning compalibrlity or paper load- 
ing and all ttie printouts were of i 
quality to put other 9-pini to shame. 
All the options are extremely easy to 
select, and the layout of ttwe se^ection 
panel myites it simple. 

The only problem with the LC-20 
is that It ii very noiiy, It is also fairly 
slow, although the final results ar« 
well worth the wait, Probably the 
pick of the 9-pins, and well worth 
shelling out for.

LC24-10 

(£214.95) 

Another "Multifont" printer with 1 5 
varieties, plus extra height characters. 
It's a 24-p^n arid the printed results 



ate as good as ar>y other 2A-pif] | 
out. The print spsed is fastest in draft 
nwde, otoviously, with 1 iO characters, 
per second. It goes down to SO cps 
wfien using NLQ. 

It's pretty noisy, and there is of 
Course the quiet mode. It's smal! and 
tidy looking aod has a selection parcel 
that looks complicated but is really 
quite eaiy to get the hang of. 

The manual Is slim, but coftajni all 
the necessary blurb to allow you to 
get the best from ttie printer. It also 
contains a handy troubleshooting 
section that lists wme of the prob- 
lems tfiat you may experience, It's 
not really a marvellous printer, me*ely 
a good one, Pkasanl,

LC-200 

(214.95) 

A 9-pln colour prirtter Is a bit of 3 

gamble for Star, 3-pin prirtters aren't 
really very tvell suited to graphics 
printing,SQ a colour option may well 
have been a futile gesture. Thankfully, 
this Is not tf*e case. 

Tfie graphics printing is not up to 
the qualitif of the 24-pin. Things look 
a little chunkier than usual, but that's 
the only real difference. Ttie graphics 
pnnting is sh^w and noisy. 
Text printing \i fine as well, with a 
choice of sijf fonts. There were no 
problems when .setting it up, and it 
worts fine without any fiddling 
arojnd. The paper feed is smooth, so 
the paper rarely catctnes and gets all 
tangled up. 

As a 9-pin it probably won't 
appeal to those who want profes- 
sional screen dumps, but for a home 
user who |ust wants to pnnl out the 
DPalnt doodles it's perfect,

If you have never used 
a hard drive with an

on with just a solitary 
floppy, then upgrading \s 
akin to a ripping out the 
engine in a Lada and 
wiring in a Porsche. Or a 
GTi or a Testarossa, Ali 
hard drives improve the 
performance of the Amiga 
considerably, but some 
more considerably than 
others. Read on we as

Commodore A590 



Expeniiw? Cert*irly, the original A590 
from CommQclone ii now overpriced for 
a modest 20Mb drive, but tiner> il dMS 
have Ifiree things going f<x it It's from 
Commodore, id if «( goes wrong yeu 
know Itiefe'i 9oif>g to be sOfne tacifuip 
support, llnoLgh'wIietlief that's any 
good ii an entirely different story, It 
looks nice, with the cksigifi and styling 
fitting iin with the host machhe. Artd 
thirdly, it has a RAM board which sim- 
ply takts plug-in chips enabling jhqij to 
add another 2Mb quite p^inl^isiy. 

Originally Ihe drive mechiniirri in 
the IJOJt was an KT ^rive, which 
e^fplains why «ftain manufacturers 
bought therpi frqm Commodore, look 
out the old drive to Hick in their PC 
range, and put » new and bigger SCSI 
drive inside- E^^sryone was a winner in 
those -circum stances, but Commodore 
has effectively ended this practice by 
putting SCSI drives in as itaiidard, 

The difference for you and me is that 
the SCSI drives are faster, so if you 
decide to plump for the reliable iup- 
plier angle check on tht underside of 
the drive whi(h it iS- It will say XT or 
SCSI - Seagate, incidentally - SO make 
sure ifs the latter. Then again, if yeu 
i^e- an XT version going dirt £heap ait a 




computer show, from a reasonably rep- 
utable dealer and you are on a limited 
budget, lhe« go for it. I have had an XT 
AS90 Since it was first released and it 
has given me no irauble at all- I just 



make a cuppa while 
watting for it to boot. 

Am AS90 package 
consists of a very light 
exteffial power supply 
box, in traditional 
Commodore shape, 
your drive, manuals and 
two disks. One is to test 
any RAM chips you. 
iristall in the drive, the 
1.1 her is to set the drive 
up for ui?. And il you 
want to start again, 
these utilities will let 
you completely riefof' 
mat the drive. 

The manual is nice 
an<J helpful, taking you 
through the various 
stages. The driv« should 
already have been for- 
matted, so all you have 
CO do is check that it 
hasn't been damaged 
in transit. |ust run the 
requisite program and then if every- 
thing's OK, your dtive is ready to use, 

If you want to customise the driwe at 
all then you need to run the 
HDToolbox program. Partitioning and 



That's what you get 
when you invest in a 
hard drive for your 
A500, but with 
numerous machines 
now flooding on to 
the market, which is 
the best for you? 
Duncan Evans 
investigates 



editing drive definitionj are possible - 
though the latter should only be 
attempted by the knowledgeable. 
Generally the software is straightfor- 
ward to use, and isn't prone to crash- 
ing, 

The drive Itself looks the part and 
extends your Amiga setup jideways in 
an unobtmsive fashicn. At the rear are 
the power socket, the DIP switches and 
an external SCSli pert tor adding extra 




» 



SCSf drives. Unless you vt idding extra 
dniwfi, only DIP switch one nemh to be 
checke<d - it should be in the 'on' posj- 
tioo !0 lUax the Miiga wiH txwt froni it 
rathef than the intemali diwe. 

The older AS 90s tied itow Epion 
drives, witti the newer ones using futer 
Seagates. Nelth€r ne top qjahty, but 
with the Seagate you Me getonq t rea- 
sonable performance, Still, it'i Oo(y iC 
rneg, and if yau intend to do any 
graphics work, diat space wril ioon ifn- 
flppear. Hoiwvef , for home ot pefwnal 
Uie it's probably enough. Yau c*n 
mstdii yow favourite mxdpr«e»or, art 
package and serious software, tltmg 
with quite a few games, esped^ the

If pedce oF mind is more imfwrtiOt 
than spe^d Of siie - and thui value tat 
money - th^n the A590 ihouU iibl be

But oi' course, if you 
want the A590 with a 
bit more punch, better 
value fof monej', but 
not fr&m Commodore 
and ait that implies, 
then this one of the 
attractive alternatives. 

Hobbyte of SiL.Albans 
^THJ Luton has taken out 
that stodgy old Seagate 
20 meg drive, and 
replaced it with a fast 
action S2 meg 
Qjantum drive, The 
price? An extra (50 for 
an EKtrs 32Mb of stor- 
age. That sounds like a 
■good deal to me, but 
then the original A550 Is 
Overpriced anyway, Stiil 
this ii good value espe- 
cially coniiderirvg that ^ 
Quantum drives are bet- 
ter quality. 

Physically it is an 
A590, with the iime styiish design, 
power and activity lighli, rear mounted 
DIP switehei and SCSI interface. Even 
the software is exactly the same, right 
down to Amiga Basic and the head park 
icon. Actually that's something you 
should be aware of. Quite i few hard 
drives don't supply the ottkial 
Commodore programs and accessories. 
It doesn't matter if you still have the 
Extras disk that came with your Amiga 
in the first place, but it n^ighl if you've 
lost it.

loaded and ran various preces of soft- 
ware and timed them. 

A fast drive, a styfish case, decent 
amount of storage and a Ram board, all 
for under £4TO - |ust If you can sir-etch 
to the BKtra cash, this is a good buy. 



Xetec Fast Trak 






The altemative place to keep your hard 
drive is urderne,ath tfie monitor, and 
this is what the Xelec FastTrak system 
provides, A small unit it Is not, but what 
is surprising is the sizable, murky brown 
boj( that slots on to the iide of your 
ASOO. It isn't as big as a ifiard drive, t>ul 
nerther is it inconspicuous. This actually 
provides a SCSI interface to the hard 
drive itself, and contains a HAM board. 

Unlike the A59Q and its variants, this 
ItAM board takes SIMMs - m opposed 
lo ORAMs - alloyving you to install up 
(oB meg of RAM. 

Why ttie RAM/SCSI box is, thii murty 
colour I don't know. It doesn't matsh 
the Amiga, and it doesn't even match 
the FastTfsfe drive itsetf. 

The FastTrak case itself thantfutfy 
conlami the power supply and has its 
on/off switch on the back, which is bet- 
ter than havtng it on an external power 
supply, unleis you can't gel around the 
back of the monitof once you've set 
your System up. The power socket takes 
a itaodarst Ecrt connector, as found oo 



cuiuw mt 






Ta-' 



kettles and the like, but unfortunately 

the cable supplied does not terminate 
in a usable plug, so you'll have to find a 
spare power lead yourself. 

The SCSI port on the back takes the 
lead from the FastfWM bos, and there 
is a slot in the case for adding e;(tra 
drives- There isn't a socket in thii slot so 
you'll have to pay fo^ one to be fitted if 
you want to add extra (lrive.s, 

This, system works just as wdl on the 
so-called AlSflCi, io if you have your 
Amiga inside one of those bomb-proof 
shelters then the FastTrak is 
undoublably more aesthetically suited 
to your system than most hard drives. 



fas.ttrM'i UtUilj and dcma T^rr«ni 

For the rest of US it lin't the most pleas- 
ant looking devke, but it sits under the 
monitor quite happily and looks busi- 
nesslike. 

The drive inside is an auto-parking 
Quantum, but having said that there is 
still a head park, program installed, and 
you are recommended to use it before 
moving the drive around. On the speed 
front it might park the heads quickly 
enough and have a fast access lime, 
but the actual data transfer rate - which 
is the important thi^ng - isn't as fast as I 
thought it wo^jid be. Quicker than the 
standard A590, but noticeably slower 
than the ASM from Hobbytje. The drive >-

Supradrive 500XP 



Ful marfis go to the Supr* Co»pprj«iri 
for creating maxirnum confuiien- The 
first two chapters of the 0p«**t6fi 
Manual are compklefy wrOft^ w4*eh tt 
why there is a slim and un«siinHng 
supplementary manual alio mclvded 
■which has the right infonViMion m 1 1 
hardly helps matten when Ihe cIibw h 
shipped with such dire witfMt^ »i 
This drive left Supra ti *n t«iiniihed 
kit and we accept no rHpuniMfy iv 
It." Very reasiuring. 

The situation is that iupt* ihipi 
them to dealers in 
this hatf-ttaked state 
and they have to 
assemble them 
before selling the 
finished version to 
you. Your warranty 
is therefore with 
whoever sells you 
(he dtm. 

The Supra isn't 
the most sophisti- 
cated looking drive, 
coming in a slab like 
cue: that stupidly 
sticks out at the 
back. It also has an 
external power 
socket like the one 
on the A59CI. Aha, 
you immediately 
think, Where's the 
power supply? 

fortunately there 
isn't jupposeni to be \^^ 
one, unless you are 
worried about the 



drive and its HAM board draining too 
much power Irom the Amiga's power 
Supply, Then you can add one, other- 
wise you don't have to. Personally if i 
had B meg Of DRAM. Chips in5ta,Hed - 
the masimum - I'rf make sure that 
there was an e.xternal power supply 
connected, 

Thefe's a SCSI port, on the back for 
daisy-chaining extra dfiwes, two lights 
indicate power and activity, and thefe's 
an Amiga thncMjgh-bus &n the left side. 
There are also some DIP switches to 




change the dnve setup, but these are 
unhelpfully placed on the side of the 
drive th^t slots against the Ami^a, 

'Very handily, there is a gam* switch 
On the back of the drtve. This cuts out 
the hard dnve and fnees up the Amiiga, 
and also maintains the power to any 
e^tra RAM you have installed. Usually 
when you cut Out the drive you lose the 
RAM too- 

Iniemally it's another of those damn 
fine 52 meg Quantum drives that are 
starting to proliferate. This means that 
it runs at speeds similar to the Hobbyte 
A590, since it's exactly the same drive. 
However, because of the construction 
it's aiso quite noisy, There's a diitinct 
thunking noiise that makes you think 
CommcKJone has had a hand in its man- 
ufacture. 

The software supplied is quite com- 
prehensive, though the manual veers 
towards heah^ detail rather than clarity- 
There is a copy of Ejipress Copy pius 
manual, which is very nice, as It per- 
forms backups and archiving. It wasn't 
written for the beginner, mind you, It 
does however let you back up Tiles 
which are lar^r than the capacity of a 
floppy disk, by ipiitting them. 

The full list ol bundled utilities 
includes a manual update file, head 
park, CLImate, partitioning, 
Supraformat ar»d Edit, Supraicons (leti 
you install icons), SupraAutoinstali 
(installs system software), and a num- 
ber of drivers and device utilities. 

Orve of the more powerful; Utilities is 
CLirriate which performs various disk 
and drivi functjons iuch ai formatting. 



renamtng, ihnv^ng pictures, and gen- 
eral file management. All without 
resorting to CU Of plodding along with 
'Wor^i.tjefich. 

The 52Mb SupraDrive 500XT is quite 
impressive from a performance and 
software point of view, afid with its 
higher price of almost £10tHt takes the 
drive into the prcrfessionai or very seri- 
ous user category- &ul tor the average 
Amiga owner it doesn't offer enough of 
an advantage over some of its rivaSs to 
warrant that extra cash.

GVP Series II 



A drive in the paric 

Thefc are three other possible options for the A500 owner seeking a good quality hard drive, but unfortunately two of 
them hadn't even got fnto the cowntcy as we went to press. From Evesham MItros cflmes the Reference 40, a plain 
looking 40IVIb drive for only £299. Appifently quite a few orderi have laeen taken for this dtive, which had been 
advertised for i month before I got in touch with Evesham, Unfortunately at the time of writing there was still no 
sight of it in this country - it's (onming from Germany - SO will have to wait and see. When it arrives Amiga Compulim} 
will let you know. 

The other non-appearance wsi by the Protar A509 HO, from Protar (0923 54U3), naturally enough, JVtarli Dowliing 
of Protar was wringing Uh hands when he realised that the drive wouW Still be under test in Cernwny as our deadline 
expired. Protar are very much touting their drik* as a GVP beater, whi<h are bold claims indeed. 

Superficially it loohs very like the GVP with a long, iSeek and correctly styled CJJse Capacities range from 20Mb up 
to 160Mb, with a cache fscllity on 40Mb drives upwards, giving a significant increase in spe^d. There's a RAM board of 
course, taking up to 8 meg, and the usual SCSI interface or Ihe back is joined by a drke disabling - but not RAM - 
games Switch- It should be here by now so look out for a review as soon as we get our hands on it, 

A third option is available now is from Third Coast (0257 472444), and Is the iVS Trumpcard, This takes up to 4Mb 
of fast RAM, Claims to be two to three (imes faster than the A3W, has auto-boot ROIVt at Handard (we should hope so 
h), slots on to the side of the A300 and is available in (ii*s of iZMb t£34?,W), 50Mb {099,99), SOMb (£529.99) and 
lOfiMb (£599,99), Chech that its in stock before ordering since our review copy failed to materialise - though we did 
get a SupraDrlve on time from Third Coast. 



\ 



GVP wins over the SupraDrive which 

does not tom« iupplied with one, 
although it can take one. If you can get 
hold of an A590 pcwfif SO pply, that is. 

Under the tKtnnet of this sleek and 
stylish looking beast ii a 40Mb 
Qoantum drive. Yei, only 40Mb, as 
opposed to the 50-S2IVlb si^e that 
ieems so prevalent now. 

The reason for this, incidentally, Is 



that Quantum have stopped making 
tht 40Mb versions. However, the drive 
m the GVP ii fast. Faster than every 
ottier drive I loo4ied at. 

For sheer Jpeed the GVP was the 
winner, although two of the other 
Quantum-based drives weren't far 
behind. It also booted up quicker when 
turned on - considerably faster than the 
A590 and the faslTrack. The utilities 



'.Veil I iilluded to sports cars at the start 
of this article, and now we come to the 
top of the range, the luxury hard drive 

- the CVP Impact Series II, There's a 

range of siiei and prices on these hard 

drives, ilarting at £450 for the 40Mb 

version and going right up to £750 for 

Ihe 1 00Mb version- 
While the function of this article ii to 

deal with the lower prke range modds, 

I'm pausing to mentiw the lOOM;b ver- 
sion merely to point out that if you're 

going to spend quite a bit Of money on 

a hand drivie - over £600 - then spend 

it on thii one. 
For those with less than bulging 

piggy banks, the 40Mb version is the 

one onder scrutiny at a slightijf pricey 

£450, 

far Iwki you can't fault the CVP, It 

fits the styling of the AiOO almost per- 
fectly, both In design and colour and 

siie. Power comes from a lightweight 

ejttemal source, that takes a detachable 

Euro plug in, and then leads out to the 

drive itself- 
At the rear Is a SCSI port for extra 

drtvpi, and on the top there's the obli- 
gatory drive lights, and the not so obli- 

galory game switch. I liked this, 

because it isn't an unlabelled switch 

stuck round the back. 

It's a nicer sliding iwitch with the 

words "auto-boot" and "game switch" 

clearly di^spiayed, Ai with the 

SupraDrive, the switch cuts out the 

hard drive and lets games boot, while 

rrsaintainlng power to Ihe BAM board 

tinside. 

Thii RAM board also takes up to 

eight meg of SIMM chip! Price wise 

there's very little difference between 

chip prices so don't worry about it 

affecting your choice of hard drive- for 

ej(ample I've seen 2Mb of DRAM at £95 

with 2Mb of SIMM costing £90- Also, 

as I've said, I'd be happier with art 

external power source if you're 

in^tallin^ plenty of RAM, and there the 

mcTu^tbii 

le CVP Impact Series II drive was the Ferrari of the collection, but didn't have a great deal dt utility softiwape. The storage 
'tapatily w4i less than its rival5,too, The vanatton on the A59a from Hotsbyte was SAtrpnsingiy good, containing a 52Mb 
Quantum drive. If you need more capacity than the GVP, and aren't looking for more than 2Mb or RAM expansion, this is 
great value. If you need that extra capacity and have cash to spare, then why noi look at the next iix of CVP drive up 7 
m The Other alternative I'd definitely recommend is the ungainly Xetec FaslTrak. Unlike the others it sits beneath your monitor, 
f has decent speed, a great set of ubiities, and the FIAM board is in a box 
away frttm the drive removing the risk of any unforUinale accidents. 





supplied on tfiE drive amount to littJe 

more than the contents of the cKtras 
disSi like the A590 and its vanant, 

There are a couple of other pro- 
grams supplied on a disk, and these 
include a formatting and partitioning 
program, a memory tester, anct some 
bridgeboard softwate for those A200O 
owners. 

5till, we shouldn't complain - it 
means you get your system up and Hy- 
ing with the rr*inimum of fuss arid con- 
cern. A comb irtat ion of the CVP and 
the FastTrak's software would be quite 
mouth-watering though. 

Generally the CVP Series II iS slightly 
more eitpensive than its rivals, and 
offers 1 0Mb or SO less storage. To be 
honest I expect it won't be long before 
the 40Mb version is phased out in 
favour of a 52Mbdrive- 

If you want speed, style and a large 
capacity RAM board, then this is ycujr 
dtm. It only I could afford Ihe 100 mpcg

AchHles and 3 lump of irwnt- 
mile matefial firmly cen^ffnltd 
ir bedrock; jpeoding a Tiver Ofl Friday 
night; and a train jcHimey to IpwnCh - 
all of theise would serve to WghigW the 
relative differences in 5p«d betwwefl 
the standard Amiga 680O0 chip im) 
the n«w £804(1'. 

This month at Amiga Cc»^ri>t9 we 
donned our Dicit Turpirv eutto jusl 
long enoLgh to tiold up two irf t*>e 
hottest nti^ boards or the highwiy 



and give theffl a thorough examina- 

licm. 

TTie Motorola 68040 chip is the new 
fidls Royce of the Amiga world, and the 
eagerly awaited release oif 040- based 
slot-in upgrade eardi fmr the A200O has 
Pfted the machine's power to heights 
horr which it can snesr in a decidedly 
down-the-nose manner at the fastest 
PCi around- If you thought the 68030 
was good, yofj ain't, ai the saying goei, 
i«n nothing yet.. 

We examined a selection of accelera- 



tors in our April iisue, the fastest of 
which were based on the iJ3MHi 

68030 chip, and the slowest of which 
were 1 6MHz 6SO20 or even up-cloclted 
680QO siolutions to the speed probfen. 



Cheap alternative 



With the release of the 0#0 bo«* « 
the new standard for uftrmatt «cceien- 
tton, it wii inevitable thai ihe pnce o« 
&803O boards should start to tai- The 
new MicrobotiCJ range i* the cheiipest

The VKL-30, in Hi rrtoil tusic toin.

Commcdore themselves have asked 
d«velop«ri not ta produce software 
Mhich LtilBies an MlVtU, arid the latest 
WorUwrteh 2,04 wii\ ignore this feature 
of the 030 chip. The EC version ot the 
010 a th«r«(ore an excellent chip to 
use 00 low cost accelerators, and the 
VJtl-30 is a lecomrviended buy for 



those on a tight budget. To make best 
use of the VXl-JO, a Rarn-32 baard is 
retiuired to allow the processor access 
to fast J2-bil memory. As we were test- 
ing the entry level board for ray trac- 
ing, we used the version with l^MHi

Tlie 63040 is twice as fast as the fastest 
030 available and wculd knock spoti 
off an 020, I shuttder to think what ifd 
do to a 6S00O if it ever slowed down 
enough to take a swipe at one. 

Three manufacturers have so far 
released 68040 tards, and we tested 
those built by Progressive Peripherals k 
Software and RCS Management Int, 
The CSA ttlagnLm (MO wasn't stipplied, 
so I can only guess how weli it will run . 

Unfortunately, neither PPS nor RCi 
included 66040-specific test software 
with their boards, ar>d I couldn't Find 
benchmarks coded to make full use of 
the new chip. It thersifore follows that 
the speed ratings, though lower than 
the 6804O's capacities, are an accurate 
measure of how the new chip operates 
with existing software, which I J more 
important to the end user than a burKh 
oi techie-head specifications. 

Chips twice, please 

Motorola's 68040 is more than an extra 
number on top of the e;(isting 660 JO 
chip - it ii a radical jump forward in 
terms of both large icate integration 
and speed. The 6S040 is so dertsely 
populated, you couldn't cram 4r>y more 
components into it if you stuck a "free 
mortgage for first lime transistors" sign 
on it. 

The 68030 chip contains about 
300,000 transistors (it could be 100,001 
but 1 loit count), whii^h some might 
think a fairiy gensfous number. The (MO,

>■ fwwewer, ccsn^ni 1 .2 miirwri li^nsislon, 
so it quicldy g€^ a link li>at in Unere, 

To deji with the problem of Iheat 
build jp, RC5 have lwlt«d an ugly-Jook- 
ing he^l iinit on top of their 040, gpvir^ 
the chip th€ dppeirance of a 
SlJCldebrkL PFS hove adopted an akf>- 
gfithet (utier approach by strapping a 
dinky littie fan on the chip which drjivvs 
its power directly from the edge con- 
nector via two soldered linlti. 

Both sdutjofis work well, though the 
RCS unit cooked up iignJiicantiy 
warmef than the PPS iKtard. Either way, 
the constrjction standards iar both 
boards are weil in iine with their 
impreisiw price t^gi- 

Each has support for anything up la 
32Mb gt 32-bil fast RAM in banks of 
SIIMM modules, and can kie canfigured 
through lumpers ind Siortwane settings. 
The bottom end twa'd from both tom- 
panies is populated to 4Mb, which is 
enough iq run a CAD or ray tracing 
package. Though both cguld be pur- 
chased with no fast RAM, ta buy an 
OAQ with n{9 J2-bit MM is a bit like 
tmyrtg a Porsche with no wheelth, 

For an illustration of the importance 
of fajl! RAM to these boards, have a 
knk at the test r(!&ults for MkrobotJcs' 
V?(L-JO bctard. This exceilert new entry- 
level accelerator ha a 25MHz 68EC030- 
and 25MH; 68&B2, but no 32-bit HAM 
without tht addition of the RAM- 3 2 
boMd. Despite ^rling a mips count to 
rival an A3000, the VXL'30 slowed 
down on the Rtjil 3D t»t as it was 
forced Us use normal Ainiga irvemocy 
chips to render the image. 

Installation 

Soinetimes the most fwoblematic area 
when instalkng high end Ml n the new 
board's system friendliness. Some slot- 
in units will happily coexist with your 
existing setup, but otheri will require 
eithet a lot of tweaking or a change of 
equipment 

For new owners of 6&QAQ boards, 
the most cornmori problem wift be that 
their hand drives aren't fast enough to 
keep up with the new processor. Any 
hand drive with an accesi time in eacess 
of about 11ms will eKperience prob~ 
ieiTis, and disk accesses can then cause 
the system to kick up. 

The ProgressFve board scores hi^ly 
in this department, as it works well with 
every hard drive I've so far tested it (hIj 
inducting a Qysotum ProDrive and an 
Impulse Plus. Both of these are fairly 
Speedy drivB, but are comnwn enough 
nfloetheieii. The Fusion Forty fell down 
badly in term^ of iti Stability and its 
hiencHiness. 

The board seems to bs quite fussy 
about which equipment it will talk to, 
and it was only reallj^ COmmuJiiiCdt.ive 
when uved with the Quantum ProDrive. 
Dnce installed, the problems disap- 
peared and the board worked very 
smoothly, hut the software inciuderJ 
with (HJF board was less user friendly 



The tests 



This is a tricky one. When it comes right down to it, al you 
can say about 6SiW boards is that they're fast. Everything 
else is a purely subfective comparison ol how well the boards 
run when pitted against cheapwr and slower boards. 



GobbledegoQk 



Vou'll often come across huge listi of tesi Figures for accelera- 
tor boards^ most of which are of interest only to syjtem pro- 
grammers and engineeri. The wast majority of tests will be 
about as meaningful to Amiga owniers as the chemical for- 
mula of monoiodlurrt glulamate. As a measure of speed, 
therefore, we decided to any oiJt standard mips tests and 
set up an extremely compIeK Real 3D image for the bCkards 
to chew o'nir. 

Mips (millions of instructions per second) <ire a purely 
intemat measure of a chip's speed, as ttiey do not measure 
how fast it communicates across its data bus or how well it 
manages its avaiiiabie memoiy. The mips count is, therefore, 
just a benchmark to indicate a beard's potential perfar- 
marKe. 

Orte final warning about mips. The Motoroia 6SO40 chip, 
as tested by Motorola's own engirteen, is cap^tile of a peak 
of 19,2 mips, and can't physically be inade to mn any faster. 



Test results 



As the perfect test tortditjons are rarely met though, don't be 
Surprised to find tftat the boards on offer will not achieve the 
peak figure. 

The Real 3D rendering test is a far better nwasure of speed 
as it is tJhe sort of appiicatiDn most user^ ol SSOAO boajids will 
want to accelerate. Our image, from the J[>obsessed Paul 
Aitstin, is^ a dmime ball tr^ped in a V-shaped box Off minors 
onto whose sides we texture- mapped a couple of fractal 
images. With recursion set to 10 (the light reflects 10 times 
before it is no kmger caJculaterl]', two light sources, and artti- 
aliasing set to level six, the image represents a test stiff 
enough to pass for ferro-concrete. 

As you'll see, the 040s worked" out almost three times as 
last as an AJCKKI running at 2SMHz, and over twice as fast as 
a 3 3MHz CVP 30O1 with SOMHi 68882. We di*i't bother 
running the fieal liD test on a standard Amiga as we wouJd 
have had to use a different version ol Real 3D. 

The JO and 040 boanls were tested on the Turtto ver- 
sion, which is specially toded for the faster chips. In any case, 
we didn't f anc^ the approximately ten (hour wait for an fiSOO 
to finish the renderingl

than the Progressive's and harder to 
install. 
The Fusion Forty's installation 

cfemands tfiat your startup sequence be 
altered so that you are given the choice 
of whether or not to start m 040 mode, 
The board wiH not just kick up like the 
PPS unit, and as a pain in the backside, 
the whole installation process came a 
cbse second to sitting on a broken mlk 
boctie, 

Ttie Progressive Peripheral board, 
on Itie other hand, was easy to install 
and worked weil with most kit. There's 
no need to mess about with startup 
sequences - the board will kick up in 
040 mode as long as the software has 
■been instated. 

Early boanJs wene shipped as WB2- 
compatible only, so early users might 
have had to install the early version 
Kickslarl 2.0 ROM induded as part of 
the package- The board also requires 
that th<e Commodore £8040, library is 
installed in your LIBS: drawer, but as 
both the Kickstart rom and the libfary 
are officially licensed Irom Commodore, 
their inclusion spoak$ highly 
of the txHrfs •'Segal' design.

The classic whodunnit game comes to the 
Amiga with Greg Pryor's Cluedo™ clone 

etot 



Hands up a\\ Ehose who don't 
know liO'W to pljiy Clu«dQ. 
rfiere can't be too many peo- 
ple who've never played on* of th* moit 
popular boird gam&i of all time, bjt 
there will bv plenty who are unsure or 
who haven't played it: in donk'fiy's years, 
so il'll recap on the rules., H you're a 
Cluedo connoisseur, skip CJiese instruc- 
Sons ard get on with the irivestjgatjco, 

Clue h p\ay^ m exactly the same 
way as tlie t>oard game Guedki. A mur- 
der has been committed and there are 
anything from two to sIk suspects, 
dcp«fitding on how many people pEa^ 
the game, Your Job is to firid out wlio 
did it, what weapon they used, and in 
whicii room they kiil«l the victim. 

At lite start of a gsme, fsv are dealt 
a number of tards from three packs, 
One pack contains the' weapons, ore 
the rooms, ^nd a third the suspects. 
Before the cards are dealt, however, 
one card is removed from each pack 
ard stashed in a. little tAack bag. These 
cards now describe who did it, wh^re, 
and wiith what. 

The object Of the game ii to move 



around the "house*, making sugget' 
tions as to how the crime was commit- 
ted until you can deduce which three 
cards are In the bag. For eKampEe, you 
might Suggest Colonel Mustard with 
the knlte in the library. I always said the 
old ex-Indian Amty man had a maniacal 
glint in his m<inockd eye! 

Cards Qutf 

if one of the other players has a card 
relating to one of the elements in y<HJf 
suggestion^ they wust show you the 
i;ard, thus eliminating it from your 
enquiries as you can now be surt it isn't 
one of the cards in the little black bag, 
Vou go on in tiiis way until you feel 
sure enough to make an accusation, at 
which point you ertf>er win the ^ame, 
by being correct, ar loM and have to sit 
out the remainder of the ga^ne if you 
get it wPD'ng, 

A second important element is to 
observe which suggestions your oppo- 
nents make and who shows them a 
card. Van are allowed to know what the 
suggestion Is, but ean oniy know that 



Composer 



ttwiBjt fTfltt ths Firfuwfes misie f5,F. Binfen 





so-and-so showed i card in response to 

it. This means jmi have to guess which 
cards your opponents hold before they 
guess youri. 

The only sure way to win at Que or 
Cluedo Is to out-guess your opponents, 
because If you wait until you've been 
shown all the caTxIs they hold, it'll be 
too late. Taking risks early on in the 
game can lead to false accusations and 



an early bath, but there soon comes a 
tirmes when everyone is getting close to 
the answer and you have to make a 
finely balanced judgment about when 
to point the finger. 

This is the essence of the game's 
appeal, and has ensured it massive 
wortdwide sales as a board game. 
Thanks to the Amiga Computing 
CoverDlsk, you can now take on your

Thii Utility Is an invaluable aid for any- 
one attempting to leam to read cori- 
ventional music scoces, or those wsih 
^aditional musical trainhg w^o don't 
relate easily to tomputer sequencers 
such OS MED. In composer, all music 

Kiting takes place on an accurate tep- 
sentation of a piece of sheet music 
Complete with four voices for a variety 
of musical instmmenls. 

Composer is deiigneei to enable the 
author to write and play back his w her 
piece, then output the score to an IFF 
lile ready for other musicians to read 
m it. The IFF file, which is in effect a 
reen dump of a single page of musjc, 
n be set on paper using a dot matftx 
^nter, but users who opt for hard 
Cop>' should be tuceful to set the image 
tojjije^aljve" on the C.raphicsl prefer- 
Hscreen. 

K Is essential,, ^s the IFFs resulting 
Ki Composer print are white or> a 
^w black background, and you 
Bwaste the best year? of a ribbon's 
Ht a long manuscript. To print an 
e easiest method for most users 
be to load It into DPaint and 



print JTOffl there, whieh also gives you 
the option of fiddling with the palette 
controls until white and blfick ^w effec- 
tively reversed. Cryde. perhaps, but 
useful if you harbour a morbid fear of 
the preferences screen. 

Making music 

Erm - can't tell you much about this 
side oF things as I'm about as musicai as 
a pneumatic drill at five in the morning. 
If you're learning the art. of sheet music, 
or would prefer to compose pieces (a 
the corrtputer using traditional notatiof 
then you're quids in. Others with little 
or no knowledge of sheet music will firkd 
iiiift^ Composer a little niore difficult. 

Vou needn't he put off, however, by 
the complicated nature of music in UlJs 
form. If you Only (earn the difference 
b^etween a semibreve and a quaver - 
please tell me it you do1 - and suss out 
what the ridiculous ItaHan temipo mea- 
sures mean, you can make perfec**" 
good use o( the program. 

Composer has the same ath'antages 
as programs like MED in that you can

The programs 

B«au» of the wide range of talents 
awTwnesd into both systems it's, imipos- 
sble lo do them {ustice with only fOiir 
pagei, s« this mof^th I'll examine both 
p»int programs and foil aw up next 
montti with the definitive guede to the 
bowdi themselves tnd <if course all the 
extra goodies that come with them. 

juit m case you can't wait and of 
course to make sure you tune in nejct 
(iKHith, hert'i a brief list of [u^t wh3t's 
beeri iricluded with both bundles to 



sweeten the pot for you, the eagef con- 
sumer. 

GW open the betting by ioci^uding 
not only Macro painMV24 but also 
Caligari-iV24, Scala-IV24. All these 
famous names are special 24-bit ver- 
sions designed speeifieatly for the 
board, but as yet I'we not Jooked at 
what's been excluded or added in rela- 
tion to the original Amiga versions, so 
I'm afraid yotj'll hav* to wart unSi nest 
month for all the juicy details, They'll 
make a mari<eting man of me yet,,, 

Not to be outdone G2 have added 
The Afl Department Professional to 
their board plus the mandatofy paint 
package entitled Imagit but unlike the 
GVP package the I magic paint program 
isn't inclusive in \he price of the board. 



in C2's defence ADPno is a near esserv 

tiat if you're working witti any serious 
Amiga art so itr's a vefy pleasati-t addi- 
tion and a must for any Amiga based 
graphic artist. 

Live grabbing 

Ai I mmtaoned eadier neither of these 
new boards can compete wUh the reso- 
lution of Harlequin but the one thing 
both can do that Harlequin can't is 
grab direct to the board via a livre video 
source or alternatively genlock or key 
frame video images direct onto Amiga 
imagery. 

Soth packages grab at l/50Ch and 
1/60th of a second which translates to 
the broadcast standard of l/25th for *■

frier>d inleiH«e whkhi requires two sig- 
nals Eo produce its imagery, tnteriace is 
wnployed on every TV and video iys- 
tem bcilh here ard over the pond, sa 
bottr boards match up perfectly. A 
dream come true for DTV hns. 

B«caus,e each board c^n match 
broidcasl rates a fww age in digitliing 
has arrived allowing the Amiga to cap- 
ture imagery direct from the itudio or 
video without any degradation. Only 
months ago frame grabbing In Ham 
with its 4,096 coloun seemed imprei- 
sive eoougti bet now we have the feso- 
iutlon and quality that only Z4-bit with 
its 16,000,000 plui colours can pro- 
vide. 

Because of theie grabbing abiiiti« 
both System! hsve a lead on Harlequinr 
which at present doesn't support frame 
grabbing Inteinally, 

If you want ta employ sucln trickery 
with the Harlequin you'll have to invest 
in an cKternal frame grabber and 
import the result? from disk. A slower 
and a good deal more expensive under- 
taking^ 

Macro paint 

At long bst we reach the first of the 
two contenderi. Aj I mentioned earlier. 
Macro paint is the GVP packiige whkh 
like the other programs in the GVP bun- 
dle is a 2^-b(t revision of an existing 
Amiga program. If the name doesn't 
seem familiar don't be surprised as It 
was never particularly popular In Hi 
onginaJ form. 

Mow before we go any further, an 
tKplanation ii in order. Because the 24- 
bit version of the package is very new 
indeed It was only possible to examine 
the Camma test of tiie software. 

If such terminology Is all Greek to 
you, i little explanatiofi may be useful, 
Gamma means it's definitely not a fin- 
ished product, in fact magazines and 
develctpers usually only ever receive 
Beta tests off unfinisl>ed software. So if 
you can tell i donna from a sJilsh, you 
may have guessed that Gamma means 
a very early version indeed. 
, Having said that the framework for 
' the package is already thefe thanks to 
its Ham'based predecessor. As a reiult,

This option to grab direct to the b<>ards is sure to win ma-ny 
friends in TV and. video but before we go on 10 the paint 
packages themselves it's perhaps best to dwify how each 
hoard handSei the process of importation in relation to lt»eir 
own paint packages and e?;actly what is Invol'ved if you're 
trying to add these imags onto yOU canvas, 

G2's grabbing talents 

with both boards grabbing itn't quite as simple as Just plug- 
ging your VCfi or camcorder directly into the back of the 
board, as both systems need a !«ltle issistance converting 
the output from ttie source into a fonnat which the Irame- 
buffer can understand. 

In C2'i case this process ii slightly simpler than that of 
CVP which can tafces both composite and RGB signals. G2 
on the othe-r hand worlts only with RGB and as a nesuit it 
needs a RGB signal converter whicfi will translate the com- 
pcsite source from either a camera or VCR into an RGB sig- 
nal which Is then fed into the board. 

Once connected up Ifs all plain sailing as tfie paint pack- 
age itself has options built in which allow you to grab from a 
video source vrfvenever necessary, sofnething which GVP's 
Macro paint cannot yet manage. A3I chat's required Is a 
quick trip to the Special Effects controls which give you 
three Options as to what can be done with ttie 
incoming signaJ. 

Before you try to import the images it's 
wise to lelect the e.xternal sync option 
which Iransfefs the synchrewiisatson to the 
cKtemaf video source. If the sync i^ left on 
the internal setting things soon 
become a little confused, especially 
tfie operator. 

OK, after the seiection is com- 
plete t}>e next choice is either to sim- 
ply View the incoming video 
onscreen, which has obviqus advan- 
tages, not least of which Is to allow 
adjustments on the camera or VCft. 

The nei«t option is to capture the 
image, which simply pastes the entire 
screen onto the canvas. Initially this 
works eMctly as the View option until the 
mouK buttfln is hit This freezes the present 
image and returns tiie software controls to the 



screen, ready for editsng or perhaps a second attempt at the 
grab. 

The last of the trilogy ii the k^ing option which allows 
you to genlock Over a live video source into a predefined 
colour within your creation. Thii keying option works in con- 
junction with the stencil controls which we'll look at a little 
Eater. 

This masking or stencil process can also be applied with 
the grab option, so only a selected area of your canvas is 
overwritten' by the incoming video signal. 



GVP's capture controls 







Unlike G2's Imagic, Macro Paint cannot import externa 
video direct from the framebuffer. It uses a different 
approach which employs the boawl's own control software, 
which will allow the display of composite video in a key 
frame format similar to that of the C? board or alternatively 
as a grabbed image which is captured and biported vli the 
board's RGB inputs. 

Because M*cro Paint in its present fwm doesn't support 
dirKt ImportatJon any grabbed inwges must first be saved 
and then ioaded from disk Into the program. 

M you'v* probably guessed the GVP bosKi positively btts- 
tles with inputs ail of which flow to a single port on the rear 
orf the board, In short If you want to genlock live vide<J either 
over Of under Amiga output you must employ the com- 
posite option but this doe not support frame grab- 
bing, 

In order to frame grab you either require a 

source with an RGB output or alternatively a com- 

pOSite-tO-RGB splittef which will provide the image 

in its component parts ready for the board to dl^st. 

Wrth both systems the expenditure doesn't stop 

with (ust the bftard and its software, aO keep 

that in mind if you're thinking about balancing 

the budget 

The massive advantage that GVP has 
Over the C2 board is its own built in genlock 
which means that geniocking can be done Over 
Of under any Amiga output. In other words it's 
not just limited to the paint paciiage, so the gen- 
lock could be employed on any application via t^ 
control software. 

Jrnpj^ pnnaibig la action, A b!t vTcvc atta paitt

it's only the code that should require 
attention. 

At the moment the software is 

painfully slow, with fiUs taking On 
a,lmost ray tracing proportions. The 
same is true for any mafor cut and 
paste operations which make even an 



unaccelerated Dpaint4 look positively 
speedy. 

On the plus side is the quality ol the 
images from the hard ware/ software 
combination. Because both the board 
and paint package are capable of 
higher resolution than that of C2's the 
images are that little bit sharper and a 
touch smoother when blown up as a 
brush. It's obvious from using Macro 
Paint that there's huge potential within 



the board which Macro Paint is doing a 
good job to suppress, thanks to a com- 
bination of siow processing and limited 
painting tools. 



Strange 




MtKTti' paifrl'j feglan 
ittvit ^*i»nfdy 



ft's fair to say that Macro paint is a 
strange package. For eKample the 
bmsh controls feature some of the best 
options I've yet seen, with various 
boolean operations, transparency con- 
trols, colour fifters and numerous image 
processing options, and yet there is no 
teKture mapping which, as you can see 
firooi the imagic images, can produce 
stunning results, 

Another ewinvple at Macro's individ- 
ual approach is the region option which 
again Is a feature peculiar to this pack- 
age. It allows you to define in area of 
the screen which can then tse processed 
in a similar way to a brush, 

So for example component colours

The last trick in Macro piinft leper- 
toire is perttaps given amjr bf Ha tide. 
Yes folks ifs our old friwid AHeu, the 
all-singing iJI-dancing convnunicitnn 
language which Macro t^atnt hoppcrn 
to speak fluently. 

Four definable ARexx conmimii i«t 
behind i selection of buttoru on the 



CDntrol ipanel, rc^ady to launch the 
script of your choice at the click of a 
mdent. n lUiVi not enough, the pull 
downs alio have their own ARexK 
option which produces a requester 
ready to run any scripl direct ftom the 
flei(x directory. 

The manual has a. whole section 
devoted to the art of AI^xk, so even 
novices should SDf]n be able to bring rts 
formidable weight behind their art, 

A less than pleasing feature is the 
i«te of the screen controls which seem 
to have fallen he^d first into th« resolu- 
tkin trap. This is a sjmilaj situation to 
that of n^inlaluisation within cofiiumer 
electronics. 

For example whn wants to watch i 
tfilnisiion the vzi of an ^tChrn? Nobodyf 
But that won't stop some pjorker build- 
ing one. Unfortunately the iume mini»- 
turis4ng mentality has. befallen Macro 
paint. After aH if yoti have ultra hi-res 
why not use it and make all the controls 
microicopic? 111 tell ^u why, bec»ui« 
you can't blaaeiy see crn, that's why... 

Anyone more than a couple of feel 
Itht) tfie screen is totally lost and even 
(I you'rv so close your hair drops out 
with the radiation it's still a bit of a 
struggle. 

Now I know size isn't everything but 
there's one more thing before I dii- 




iomt flannlnf tfO^pitf nC Uixra paiitti utrOtni bnah tatttfoii^ ttnlf It Sai tSiUitr mappinf... 



n^ount my lofty steed, and 
that's the standard brushes. 
They're piddling little things 
which even at their largest 

aren't anything like big enough, 
and 10 rub salt In the wound they're 
not definable so you'fe stuck with 
what's on offer. 

Another infyriating ovenighl is the 
lack of a blend or smooth tool. Mot 
something to lose much deep over you 
mk|ht think but if you're trying lo cre- 
ate a convincing transition between a 
bn^h and a background both of which 
contain hundreds of thousands of indi- 
vidually colourect pixels it's enough to 
k^fp you yp *fl night and probably 
most of the f ollowiing day. 

As a result a smooth tool in the fofm 
clS a sta ndard brush is sadly missed . To 
tK fair there is a smooth option avail- 
able via the region con- 
tfols which is fine 
for large areas 
but almost 
useless on 
ijnerde^il. 

Another 
mild inita- 
tton is the 
way in 
which the 
ptckage 
actually 
applies the 
paint 
Rather than 
showing the 
strokes as 

they're applied it 
wails until you're fin- 
ished and then adds the colour you 
used, and as a result all painting is 
^ppliied in ttie rather nauseating hospi- 
tal green of the interface, 

To be honest Macro Paint does seem 
a slightly strange choice as the opening 
paint package on a brand new board 
but 1 3uppos« GVF know luest and to be 
honest I doubt it will be alone for long 
as there are strong rumours that an 
American company more famous for ib 
kitchen appliances is already develop- 
ing a paint program to run with the 
board. 

All in all, Macro Paint has some 
excellent features mixed with some 
very mediocre ones but considering it's 
included with the price of the board it's 



hard to complain, especially when it'i 
coiT^ared with the £:39S askJrvg price 
for level one of Imagic, 



■magic 




Unlike Macro paint, In^agic dcresn't 
claim to be a complete package, in fact 
the version reviewed is only pan one o^ 
a two-part package which G2 claim 
buiids into a complete, all-encompass- 
ing system that will cater for everyone's 
artislac needs. 

At present module two of the duet b 
Still in develci^nient so I can't comnient 
on wftat exactly will be on offer tiut <t 
it's on » par with its predecessor I 
doutit they'll tie many people left want- 
ing, 

C2 expbin their decision to split the 
system liy mentioning that mt all usera 
require all the talents of the complete 
system and as a result user^ will only 
need to pay for what they need rather 
than leaving half the package idle but 
still having to pay the full price, 
which for both modules comes to a 
frightening £750. 

Even without the extra module 
you'll be looking at £395 for the 
basic system sa as you can see 
there is a price to be paid for the 
extra speed and convenience of 
tmagic. 

The second drawback with the 
Ci2 system i; the board itself, which 
is in technological tenns rather dated 
in comparison with its GVP opponeil. 
As well as the age difference there is the 
subject of flexibility. Here again the 
CVP scores high with a good deal more 
tmboard features than the VD2001 but 
to be fair if it's pure painting skills that 
interest you this aspect of the two pack- 
ages won't be a big is>ue. 

Friendly front end 

Imagic couldn't be further reinoved 
from its opponent. First the board is 
well established and has been on the 

madoet around two years. This has obvi- 
ously made a difference during the 
devebpment of the paint pack,ige - it's 
fast, smooth *nd simplicity itself to use 
with a large and friendly command 
window opening whenever the rodent 
is pushed to the top of the screen. 
Once the comnund window ii acfi-^ 



■M 



>■ vated you are conf forHed by the draw 

commands wtnkh again compriie of all 
th€ old Dpaint f aTOurilSi complete with 
bi-modjlar itcxii which either activate 
or adjUJt the selected command. 

The first choice ts wheltter to accMi 
one of the four as yet unseen command 
windows whiich ti&ld the defaults for 
brush, cotoiir, special effects and dtik 
access. Clicking on uny oi the above 
immedlateliy replacH the present corv 
irol panel witti ttiat of ttie selected 

"^ function. 

fSj In the centre of the sfTcefi rest the 

paint controls themselves which divulge 
their talents after a tap on the right 
mouse button. Again this produces a 
repiacemert requester filled with the 
relevant conlrojs^ 

Surprises 

As well as the usuat array of fills, curves 
and zooms there are a. few hidden sur- 
prises such as a brush cutlef wrth its fl^« 
separate cutting options. CHckirig on 
any of the shapes either filled or oul- 
hrwd produces te own requester eofli- 
plete with options lo either fill with 
eitJwr soiid, gradient, filter or text jre. 

CUckIng on any of 
these adds even 
more variety to 
the lively rodeol's 
little world. The 
reas£in fof all this 
estra cfioice within 
the icon Of a humble 
polygon or sphere is. 
thit these shapes are 
■used to employ the various 
Alters, gradients and of course 
silly textures to areas on your cre- 
ation, 

Of course this iin't the only method 
or adding effects - in fact most funt- 
tions tan be added directly with the 
trusty fill butket but for many of the 
effects, siKh as smoothing and filtering, 
an area defined by a standard shape is 
much easier to apply, As well as the

above there's a reasonable choice of 
default brushes. Once again they're not 
resizeable, but unlike its oppo- 
nent Imagic will 
allow you to cut 
a brush and 
paint with it 
without too 
much hassle. 
The only escep- 
;mn is when 
anti-aliasing is 
applied, as it does 
tend to slow the pack- 
age sRghtJy. 
Anti-aliasing, as you've 
probably guessed, ii another 
option availablie from the draw 
controls, It can tie turned on or off as 
required. 

Sharing the tame icon with the anli- 
aiias control are the remaining mode 
tools which can either add Of subtract 
the selected painting toiokjr from the 





62 



The final round-up 

i4ow this is going to be tncky. Firstly for those purely interested in painting 
Imagic has to be the best bet, especially il you need a package that will produce 
the goods in a comnwrcial environment with a noviM at the controls sooner 

rather than later. 

If s quite simply a doddle to use and does an excellent |ob even without the 
rtiolutson that GVP can offer. Another scoring point for the board arvd its soft- 
ware Is the imminent re^lease of the Sally effecls board which will work m con- 
junction with both the VD2001 and its soon to be release 32-bit big brother. 
Studio standard animated Z4-tit video effects, tune in next month for more 
details... 

On the other hand if you're looking for an investment the GVP package is 
ainwst impossible to beat with not only a paint packag* but an entire worksta- 
tion included in the price of the tmard. 

Anothef scoring point for GVP has to be its obvious attraction to dieveiopers 
thanks to all the powerful built in features such as gentocking, nicker fixing, pic- 
ture in picture (PIP) display and so on. 

Flexibility is the key to CVP's 1V24, and if the developers iollow it up as I'm cef- 
lain they will, the company could be holding the industry Standard as they did 
with their massively popular 030 board, which until necently was at the heart of 
airnost every serious Amigi. 



image, so a blue could beconne brighter 
(X perhaps erased completely. 

It's almost like having a selective 
undo, but you have to be careful as any 
combination of colours can be com- 
pletely changed.. for ex,ample if you 
strip the red frorn a pink the Stroke will 
Still remain but now it will appear blue. 

The last of the mode tools is con- 
trast, This can be particularly Impressive 
on gradients as it selecti\.'ely lightens or 
darkens the affected area in relation to 
the currently lelected colour. Some of 
the transparent effects in the Imagic 
Gradi image are a prime example of 
contrast in action. 

As well as the assorted paint icons 
come the usual ielection of swap 
screens and undo'i among which lurks 
the status requester. This constantly dis- 
plays the Slate of the system in a similar 
way to that of Dpaint, which is hardy if 
you're not sure whether you're about 
to apply a gradient or paste a brush. 

Colours 

The last section of the opening window 
has been saved for the all important 
colours, which are displayed on eight 
64-pot palettes, each of which is 
selected by clicking on a miniature rep- 
resentation beneath the present 
palette. 

The next control panel after the all- 
Important draw controls comes the 
brush commands. Old favourites like 
rotate, flip and resize are almost 
mandatory for any self-respecting paint 
package, but abng with these standard 
skills c«Tie Ihe ability to adpit or retain 
the as.pect of the brush, plus a useful 
transparency option which operates lilte 
a stencil by only allowirig selected 
colours to be pasted onto the canvas. 

After brush control comes colour 
control, complete With RGB sliders 
which allow mariual generation of 



%Ifs almost like 
having a selective 
undo, but you 
have to be 
careful.. ^ 

colour plus a grab option so you tan 

pick coioufi direct from the icreen. As 
you might expect, a full compHment of 
copy and range controls are available 
so literally any colour is possible. All of 
which can be placed in any one of the 
right available palette. 

Special effects are next on the list 
and the Options open with the digitis- 
ing controls which were mentioned 
way back at the beginning of tfw arti- 
cle. 

The second bit of trickery takes the 
form of stencil control which simply 
defines which parts of the image cao be 
ovenwritten whether that be by paint, 
incoming live video or imported 
txu sites, 

Olher controls 

The Prefs control gives access to a num- 
tsfif of predefined control panefl colours 
but perhaps more importantly an 
opdon to hold the spare screen either 
in memory or on disk - very hancfy if 
you're working with rather limited 
memory. 

Last hut not least we have the disk 
controls which cover all the usual Load 
and Save conrtsinations including 
palettes, brushes and of course pictures, 
not forgetting the useful sleep option 
which allows, you to make quick trip* to 
workbench to do those essential bits of 
tlnfcering with ADPro.

designer test or pe/napi a corporate 
I090 into a Rtcil 3[> image 't usually 
meant more work than the rest of the 
erealion put together. 

Mow thanks, to RaceTrace a simple 
Ugnature can be produced in Dpaint, 
edrted and extruded in RaceTrace and 
Bnalljf rendered \n Real in under 30 
fiwiulis. 

To produce the same image via

Imagine with its built in extruding abili- 
be Mould struggle to keep pee, tven 
iwtien complete, I doubt the Imagine 
obiett could compete with the feel of a 
IrtefBTid Dpaint creation. 

Producing ttte goods 

The firat choice is to load ar ima^e or a 
teeTnce file, a ftaceTrace file being a 
pre-processed image. This option 
JiMn you to eKperiment with all kinds 
fl* cxtmsiDn depths and editing ityles 
wttioMt having to import and process 
IFF* pvwy ime you want to try a n*w 

lOQlL 

», leTs say, you load an IFF, the firat 
task tj, to seCect all or just part of ttie 
image and next comes colour neteclion, 
wAidi a done by jjmply clicking on the 



coioufi you require- Finally you can 
choose to deTine holes if you're workirkg 
with: Real ^D obfects. 

When all the basic selection is com- 
plete the editing tjegins, As you can see 
from the unprocessed reflectJor of the 
signature the Starting point can tte 4 lit- 
tle rough thanks to the jaggies whiich 
are unavoidable when working with 
low res graphics- 

At first it seems a daunting task to 
edit out every single [aggie (jyt thanks 
to a fast and completely mouse driven 
interface it's considerably less painfui 
than it looks. 

The whole operatiion is a bit like 
rea jumbling a dot to dot drwi^ing. On 
straight lines it's limply a matter of 
deleting the jaggies between the first 
and Ust poiots. On curves the same

applies and when all the jaggles are 
destroyed a new smooth arch can be 
added wrth the flexible curve which 
reacts to mouse movement producing 
a peffect replacement for the original. 

Tfie control pand has a whole range 
of editing tools which allow you to 
move insert and delete points as 
required, whilst the function and arrow 
keys zoom you in and out as you leap 
from one polygon to the n*!K[- 

Ail or just selected polygons can be 
ei:truded and saved, SO an object can 
be rebuilt iri a raytiacing from its com- 
ponent parts. Tlial way elements of the 
obfect Can have their own textures, 
materfali and surface maps defined. 

Vou may well ask why bother with 
RaceTrace if there's so much editing 
involved but believe me cleaning up a 
font is a great deal easier than starting 
from scratch and because the sJieleton 
is already present there's no hand 
drawing invoived, it's jiist a matter of 
follow the blueprint. 

Coming attractions 

Updates are high on the priority list at 
Alternative Image, as a result an 
upgrade will be available around 
Christmas that will employ high res 
images but which as a result will be 
restricted to around four colours. 

The ne.Kt surprising upgrade is to thi 
code itself which at present consists of 
compiled GfA Basic which somehow 
managei amazing speed swen iri' the 
present version. Version two will be 
produced in pure C so God knows how 
r^uick it will become, 

Any updates will be dirt cheap to 
existing users so don't worry about 
investing sooner rather than Jater, The 
last bit of hot gossip concerns the 
Imminent release of Space Fonts, These 
complete fort sets come with an as yet 
unfinished utility that adds Halk, bold 
and bevelled edges to your 3D text, 

And finally... 

RaceTrace is easily outstripping the 
opposition for both speed ntvii power 
and the forthcoming updates, and sup- 
port software should make it unbeat- 
able. In thOft a very impressive product 
and an essential for anyone wtm's irnto 
the virtual hflradd.

Before you reach for the salt

at G6 Route Plus from Comple*^ 
Compcten. It appeared in its first 
version eartier Ihii year and li 
still the only serious Amiga 
route-tinider program, Priced 
at £19.95, GE Route was an 
attractive buy, but sutfered 
from a few major drawbacks, 
There wa* no support fOf B- 
roadi, no villages were 
included on the map, and 
ihe iist of towns ind cities 
?opport)ed was more lirnited 
than many users would hsve 
liked. €B Route Plus has 
, atkJFessed most of the ear- 
er problem;! with the 
result that, ev^n at its 
new pri<:e of £79, ?5, it 
is a much more valu- 
able aid to Journey 
planning. 

Beautiful 

The addition of B- 

roads ilsetf would have 
greatly enhanced the 
ptogram's appeal. It is 
now possibk to plan 
-^ a routt east to 
west across the 
country with- 
out having to 
use A-roads, 
tind when i 
local journey es 
planned you 
can elect to use 
mostly B-foadi 
thus picking up 
on the iort of 
obvious short-tuti 
iqnored by the wigi- 
I nal program. 
[W| I As an accompa- 
nifne-nt to B-

larger villages, and you

most striking improvements. 

Motorwav phobia 

H you luHer from a f*ar of motorways

road, M a default, all roads are equaiy 
good in the program's eyes, but you 
can tell It to weigh its decisions against 
a liking for a particular type of road 
from standard to six times its normal 
attractiveness. 

In this way, Ar-Roads can be set to six 
and motorways to one, and CB Route 
Plus will find you a route to avoid 
motorways completely and slick to the 
fastest A-roadi, If you prefer ttte scenic 
route, any or all settings can be fiddled 
with until the program's feelings about 
the various types of road more or less 
match your own pre[udice5, 

G& Route's original New Route 
requester allowed the driver to specify 



three 'way points" via which the route 
should be planned. The New Route 
requester now allows up to five way 
points, and will accept a time during 
which the journey will halt say, at a 
motorway service station, 

In addition, it is passible to instruct 
the program to avoid up to three loca- 
tio-ns or even an entire road - "avoid 
MZS" will probably be the most popu- 
lar use of this function I By utilising the 
new options, you can map out a com- 
pleji; route far more likety to imeet your 
requirements than the original pro- 
gram's routes could have. 

Limitations 

CS Route still suffers, of course, from 
ttie same pr<sblems most route-findef 
programs encounter, II you live in a 
very small village, for example, you 
probably won't find it on, the map and 
will have to settle on starting ywr route 
from the nearest marked place. This 
shouldn't present i major obstade, 
because most of us know the fastest 
road to the nearest sizeable town or vil- 
Iflige in any case, 

You will also find the program orters a 
few weird suggestions if you don't spec- 
ify places to avoid and roads you'd pre- 
fer to lake, it is easy to end up with a 
route gobg through London's city cen- 
tre iff you're lijol<ing to go ffom north of 
the city to the south and you've told the 
program you hate motorways. Any 
amount of free parking on the fi.^2i is 
preferable to a drive through tomdon, so 
U5ef3 will have to tweak the program to 
get the nwst from it. 

One small irritation when scrolling 
around the map was the lack of a fast 
"go to area" option, but with the map 
in wire frame mode it scrolls fast 
erkough to overcome this. 

Coficiusion 

GB Route Plus a an excellent product 
which overshadows the original. The 
improvements it offers are always practi- 
cal, never cosmetic, and as It stands the 
program would be good enough for 
many business uses. WitJi the editor, due 
for release soon, GB Route will be about 
as good as It can get.

way? Too many for tJw user witts an eye

that's for sure. 

In common with mo« A5M uien, 
you may fiave invested in a 5 meg 
upgrade card and imagined yowf mem- 
ory problemi were over, only to di- 
covet Ihal they had juit begun. K your 
onginal worriei wefe over Ihe sort of 
p'aphici and animations yxju foukJ fun 
0« your machine, yonJ might ev*n have 
found that the jidditidn o( more l*it 
RAM h^i had Uttle effect in llw art 
(>^artmmt. 

Painting, DTP, CAD, flven many 
games these days al! require at (east 
one megabyte of memory, but itse rea) 
piTKh cornel when you realije som* of 
Ibem require a full meg of chip mem- 
ory- Started tearing out your hair yel? 

Whither one meg? 

The qyeitiion becomes one of what 

ioftwAre iftackages you intend to run on 
your syjtem. if these are mostly of a 
non-graphic*l nature, such a wordipro- 
cessors and spreadsheet!, there ii no 
real need to go through the riiky busi- 



mill 



Stevie Kennedy examines ways of 

ramming your ASOO's memory to 

1,5Mb or more 



ness of converting the ASOO to utilise a 
fiHt meg ot cNp RAM. 

On the other hand, if yoi* wish to 
use a piir^t package to its fullest, or 
Intend to spend a lot of time on DTPj 
you will almost certainly come iip 
against the haH-meg thip BAM barrter 
at an e»rly stage in the proceedings, 
When this hapfwns the only option is to 
reach for your soldering iron and start 
cooking. 

OK, lefi iay you don't need a full 



expansion itiould you go lor? Tfrefe ire 
ve^'eral clear choicei these dsyi, but the 
two most obvious calegofies are those 



Opened, thui invalidating your war- 
ranty, and those which (it e^tlernally 
and dte no more than a simple bolt-on 
rtdrfition;. 

The latter are usually much more 



great deal e.i'Ller to fit uDd usually 
accept anything up to SMb of extra 



boardi to fit in the macfiine's trap door, 
and range from 1.5Mb to 6,iMb in 
?tze. The procedure whicti invalidates 
your warranty with these cards ii the 
connection to the Gary ihip so that the 
Amiga will recognise the e;<tra nwmory. 
Thii entails opening your machime 
and levering out the Gary chip, fitting it 
in a small PCB, then re-insertmg the 
whole stiooCng match where the Gary 
chip originatly rested. As opening Ihe 
Amiga's casing, let alone bodily evict- 
ing poor old Cazza, lends your war- 
ranty skyward in a puff of smoke, the 
option 13 recommended only to those 
whose ASOO's are over a year oW. 

Sturdy boxes 

In extemal uiiits., the chone is limited 
to a handful of tin boxes wrtiich attach 
to your expansion port on the left-hand 
side of the 50O. The few th^t fiJiist are 
mostly Oi lairly sturdy construction, will 



ability to expand with your system up 
to a memory limit most usually ol 8Mb. 
Expensive and bulky, perhapi, but 
likely to be the last purchase you ever 
make in the arrea of memory expansirin. 

TKi rnrtos mormnrw hnt and the new 



SupraRam 500RX are particularly natty 
little devices m this respect, either ol

Though the CorteK certjinty loses out 
ir terns of loots and age, being s few

lob, arid has tfiE advantage of using 
more readily av<iHable iIMM (hipi. 
These can be purchased at bargain 
pikei if you rummage around at user

Like the 500HX, Corlen ^have taken 
Ihe rejponsihlE step ol irKludirvg » full

the Cortex unit will not restrict your 
Olher peripherals or future enpiinision

power iupply diHicullies. 

With its auto-(onfigurinig memory, 
through pofi, separate power supply, 
and even its friendly disposition 
towards AlOOO owners, the Corts?ic unit 
IS a very il^blc, eflicienl, dnd durable

SupraRamSOORX 

The SOOflX 15 fl new, sleekly ityle<i unit 
utilising the latest chips, for i low power 
drain, and therefore doesn't have it4 
own power supply as standard. The 
DRAMS .*re of the ZIP type, so all tfie 
pins are on one edge of the RAM chips, 
and they stdfKl up on the mother board 
like doniifioes. Norm^il DIP DHAMs dre

Ihey LalLe up much more spate than 
ZiPi. 

The Linit can be populated to various 
memory sises, all of whtch aulo-conhg- 
ure, Iwt the most sensible option is to 
purchase it with 2Mb of 1Mb x 4

Cheap but risky 

So what do you do if you don't fancy 
shelling out two or Ihree hundred 
pounds jusl 10 DPaint or Pen Pa! will 
work bettfif? You. are faced with two 
important decisions. The first, as men- 
tioned above, is whether or not lo go 
for 1Mb of ctiip RAM and risk damag- 
^ ing your Amiga with a 

ihoddy solder job. 
The second is a 
qTjestion of

attached CO everything not nailed 
dcjwn, and when Commodore took up 
the design and released the A500, they 
couldn't have forseen the sort of equip- 
ment now being forced into and ocito 
the humWeit Amiga. 

What all this adds up to is a machine 
with a wimpy power supply tTying to 
teed an ever iocreasing number of 
peripherals and, more often, than not, 
giving up and settling for a Curu medi- 
tation. Wheni you slap a 1 ,5Mb board 
into your A500, therefore, the safeil 
course of action ii to buy a more pew- 
erful PSUatthesannetime, 

The boards 

Again, we can separate the contenders 

into two camps - those which offer a 
conversion to one meg of chip RAM, 
and those which simply plug in and 
add an fKlra 1.5Mb of fast RAM. There 
are only a few 1 .5Mb boards in my 
case, but even fewer which offer the 
chip RAM conversion, » we've stuck to 
one board from each camp.

mounted 256K x 4 chips and a Cary 
chip connector. Don't confuse this with 
Ihe iort of board which offers a Chip 
memory upgrade - the Gary chip con-

nector is essential for th& e«lra rrieiirvDry 
to pcoperly configure upon bootirig the 
Amiga. To Rt the board, the user takes 
the top off the A5O0, prises the Caty 
chip oul with a screwdriver, fits the 
Gary chip to the Zydec's separate PC&, 
then slots the main board into the trap 
dw>r. 

A final connection Ls made to pi tig 
the Gary board to the main bo^rd, then 
the Amiga is stitched twck up again and 
sent off to post-op. 

There is in on/off switch and some 
lest software, but Ihe latter won't usu- 
ally be needed, as ttie board is reliable 
and kicks up the full 1 .SMb with no 
trouble. That'i really all there is lo it, 
i;m afraid, It does what it does. 

Power Computing 

Everything I've just said about Ihe 
Zydec board can be said about Power's 
1.5Mb board. It wDrls well, lises stan- 
dard chips, and is reliable. It's only fail- 
ing is that It has no on/off switch, 
though this is little more than a nui- 
sance- 
There are games which will work. 
only with the onginal 0.5Mb of Amiga 
RAM, but they are lew and far between. 
The Power board's most useful sma 
fealure has to be its 1Mb chip RAM 
option. Thii enlaili cutting a "trace" 
inside the Aimiga and making- a single 
solder link, but once it's done it's per- 
manent and shouldn't bother you 
again. 

The manuai supplied with the board 
has cleir and concise inilructions on 
how 10 accomplish this minor feat of 
engineering, and I was pleased to sec a 
spattering of strident warnings on the 
dangers of damaging the Arriiga or 
invalidating your warranty. The disk 
supplied is also a nice surprise, a J it 
contains ieveral useful PD programs on 
top of the test scrftware, SID being the 
most useful Of ihe lot. 

Conclusion 

Altogether, nowl "Yoy pays your 
money and you fates your choice! 
Phew, now that I've got that old 
reviewer"! cliche off my chest, all I can 
really say h that you should carefully 
consider your requirements before 
going near a memory upgrade. You 
won't need th€ extra chip memory if 
you're only going to do ionn wordpro- 
cessing and play games, ar>d you won't 
need four or even eight megabytes 
unless you plan on running two ray 
tracers at oncel 

Try not to get over-excited at thie 
prospect of four megabytes - if you 
never u.se more than two, you'H never 
know the difference. 

All the units covered in thes* pages 
are reliable and commendable options. 
Where they differ is in terms of price 
and their appeal to use-rs with differing 
requirements, so it's down 7^ 

to yoti to make your choice.

Stfvefal monttis later we come to tfte

plete. Jet and Jed are still moaning 
atjout why lifiey can't put 1 S diiks in a

and P went to Derby to have a loofc, 

T>ie story gciei tfidj: the Viking peo-

prophecy. "One dar^ s child' will be

fleons passed and the age of' 
nanah carrte, the ume when Loki, I 
of the evil gods, would challeng 
decent Vifciog gods to a tiMe. a i

But Loks pulled a fast one, « 
gods are wont to do, and icsiis^ 
three sacred weapons of the good' 
across the Ihree planes of existence 

The <3odi couldn't retrieve 
either, becduse rf any of them 
down to earth, they would be 
mortal and never enjoy the perks i

Tlie time was now rght far One'

Agerstfeman's dub of Jate

to be the first to have a senie of

club that is decorated m a very austere 
style, apart frorrs (t»e numerous qattd- 
irme gals who wiinder around in 
basquK and juspendecs like the ones 
in Twin Peafi One Eyed Jack's. 

The Bomb Clubi favourite pasOrrte,

over which of the four positions it is set 
in. The only way it can be changed is 
bf guiding tfie bomb through it - this 
hits the switch which flicks the gate 
onto the next posioon cJockwise ffcim it 

Tbe cQiTibination o-f Che pieces and 
hazards, and the correct manipuiatloo 
thereof, make for as real challenge as 
you try and stay ahead of (he (Ofistant- 
ly moving bomb. 

It alJ ends up bemg a biit like Pipe

greying extent, and the addiction Is 
ihere. but it wcwi't cause the same sleep- 
less nights. 

The more advanced leveis can cauw 
some pretty serious nightmaresv bvt the 
game often provides opportunities to 
hang around, by parking a bomb 
between tim dosed gates, giving you 
tne chance to thmk darefuily sixnA the 
problem as opposed to forcing you to 
malie off the cuff decisions - one of ihe 
faaors that made Pipe Mania such a 
nightmare. 

To add to the troubles, each bomb 
fiepresenti a life and to complete a level 
ari you have to do is get all your remain- 
ing bombs through the course. This 
means that you will be able to whistle 
thro*jgh about five levels in quick suc- 
cession if you are down to one life, 
because getting one bomb through is 
no problerii on most levels. The better 
systenr wouJd have given you a fixed 
nurnber of bombs to get through the 
lev^l - ttven if you failect you would lose 
a life and have to try agam. 

The small numher of levels, JO, 
means Itiat the puce is a fittfe high for a 
game it^r can be completed in a rack- 
handed way, one bomb through 25- fev- 
els, very easily. Orv the good side 
though, the feveii that are there are 
reaUy gonsd fijn. and sometimes take a 
few attempts to woric out. 

White you do try to vrark them out it 
IS great llin, and spmetimes very frustrat- 
ing as the spectator! at the side reach 
across and interfere with your hard 



work, a clever feature that hasn't i 
seen before. 

in all though it is a little loo smple^ 
great fun for a while, but rtot qe 
enough to wan-ant a .place In soft 
history.

that lass off Corona tion Street, Sally 
Webitef. 

5ofTy l9<te, Trev ere, Hie reason I'm 
io ewJted js that Gremtin have finally 
got around to chuckin' out the sequef 
to fast year's stonker littui 
Esprit Turbo Chaitenge, Fiat 
racing game was the busi- 
ness Si f^r jss I'm coocerred 
and Gremlin have at least 
done the sound deal by rtot 
fhifckin' out the same game 
with a few mo-re tratlts, like 
with "Ard D?ivwi' II or summaL 
What they've done is change 
the gamtplay considerably 
tq rnske it a separate 
package, like, and 



therefore yvorth the dosh. Or is ft? 'Ere's 
the bw down. lads. 

This Hme around we get eight levels, 
slartsng off dead simple Shen endin' up 
pfetly nasiy, lifie. Instead of 'avin' a race 
as such this one takes its cue from Rad 
fi^atile. Sega'i ace coirHip, and has a 
series of che^tpoints that have to be 
reached tjefore yon tinie njns out. 

You start of wi' surnmat like 30 set- 
ofKb to reMh ttK next checkpOFnt, or 
whatever, then when you reach the 
next one you are given the seconds to 
reach the nert checkpafint, plus whstev- 
er seconds you 'ad left ffom the one 
yauVeJustdofte, like. Qevsf inniti" Each 



of tf>e eight levefs 'as upwards of five 
checkpoints with Ihe t\na\ leve^ 'avin' ten 
ksrtg ooes, All this Hack adds up to over 
an hour of solid dnvin', if you're 'afd 
enough to get all the way tfirough like I 
am. 

An' when me an' Shai are in the 
front seat with the fcrry dice an' the sun- 
strip with our namei on there jusi ain't 
ho stoppin' us mate, I can tell ya. 

The eight levels take the driver 
through a variety of landscapes, each of 
them presenting their own little prot>- 
lems, lite. iFor example the 
marshland

white background jwhere's the trac

that throw you off (C43rs€ in a wiek-

It Is d/lf«fient enough to warrar>t a

staniJatone game in its own right not 
haff a sequel like some I could name.

knofltfid your socks off in the first one.

The handling is superbly observed.

advantage to get past

opponents on the insicte line. Sound ij 
e:(cellent - the high standard in-race 
effects aif connpferriented by Ngh class 
tunes, a separate one for each level- but 
the CD player gf the first one, which I 
loved, IS missing JtjawiJ, 

One big improvefnent is the way that 
the ane-plaj^r game gives a full screen 
display, as opposed to the cropped orse 
of the original vefsion, 

f have to say I preferred the original 
because there was rtiore to rt - the pit- 
stops araJ the levels of difficulty - and i 
personally preferred the chaltenge of 
racing IS w 19 cpponenEs rather tfian 
the clock. But racing against the clock 
means continual pressure, and therefore 
continiial entertainment, and it is orty 
my preference. 

There are very strong merits ta the 
checkpoint approach, one being that 
you never get to first place and never 
st^ the chance of getting bored. I*- 
mg a v^hole different approach was 
brave iitit it means that this is a vwjrthy 
purchase whether you have the origijtal 
or not. So, a highly addictive stan- 
dalone product, and not a 
rehash cash-in sequel 
Wen worth the money.

part of ttie film, bet &ie three of thein 
are basicaHy duplicates of eath other, 
and one of tfjem is sa unbelievably aw- 
ft^l that it B barely v/onr\ talking about 

The first fourth and eigttth fina( tevef 
all feature Sv TSOO fighting the T 3000, 
It starts off wtth s bft of gurafiring then 
the ma aS them move in a fcf a bit of 
mindteii hand to hand vtolence. Now 
don't get me wrong - Jt is well impte- 
inented, Urt it appeari three bmej and 
jt eveiituaily gets repetitive. 

The second level features 
Arnie and Jotin on a' 
Hartey Davison Kyir^ to 
escape from the chuffing 
jtigigernaut bearing 
down on the two 
bilokes, This part takes 
the fonn of a verticafly

the bike has CO' jump ower 
rampi avoid roc*j and try- 
ing to pick up the odd 




bonus here and there. If the btke hfts

if the trucft hits the bike fro«Ti Ijehfnd 
then John loses energy, in the words of 
the esteemed Gamer ace reviewer, Bif(a, 
It 'tootts like something mn of shiMt-'em- 
up Conslfuction Kif . 

level three is the first of t(ie two ptiz- 
zfE sEctrons ttiat involvei you rearrang-

dannaged arm. Thfs section Is reasDnaE;)iy

piece and mows it to e«a(tly where you 
want. If you complete it within the given 
time then ,/^nie's energy s fufly restored 
for the nefl teve), Comptete half and he 
only gets hatf his energy ba«:fc- 

Level four is another dodgy fight 
scene, while Level five rs a sJigtitly :iTtOfe 
complt)! puiife section that tafces the 
fofm of one of t^se infuriating' sliding 
punJe games ttiat annoyied me wtien I 
was a Jtid ai you try to reconstruct 
Anne's face. The same tnfwjsies apply as

Level seven sees you m contro) of ihe

shoot down the pursuing helicoptef 
whjie you keep the thing straight 
enough for her to get a decent ai'm. This

The Vatican has a lot in common as

goes but is completely different in exe-

Ronny instead. Phew. 

Ronny, «jr tieno, lives In Fieldington, 
an unnecessan^ rany and warty fiction- 
al cartoon type town. Everything in 
Fieildington is cheertjl and iwee. It's the 
sort of plate were people burst into 
song in ine middle of the sureet, and aH 
the buildlngj bounce frcim side to side 
in time to the music. It's tliat sort of 
place - not the sort where you want to 
wafce up with a hangout. 

Nor is it the sort d pace to steal the 
Crown Jewels from, but that's what 
sorrte highly stupid FieWir>gtOJi thieves 
have done. Even more ituprdly, ratiWr 
ihan ftog the jewels on the BJack Marfcel 
and rrwve to fiio. the thieves have ieft 
the jewels m flashing bones all over

job, I don't know, you pay your taites, 
you're a responsible cifcen and you end 
up dfflng the pollee force's dlrly wor* for

Anyway, what it all bolls down to is 
nine lewis of scrolling platform Ktion 
with Banny risKmg life and wig to (oBect

birds out to mark your card, The zari ift

Rolling Ronny is pretty damn surreal 
When you thmk about it, It's also wrhat 
the Mcierrt Greeks migW have called "a 
(lippin' gio«i game". 

If I've got one criticism of Rolling 
Rofiny. ifs EfHt It's just a tiit too similar 
to ail the other scnoily ptatfomi games 
that have mysteriotjsly started to appeat 
sinte the console market took off. It's 
very, very similar, for instance, to 
Ocean's Simpsons game, or Sonic the 
Hedgefwg oi the Sega felegaDrive, The 
little errand running bits go some way 
to make It special, but the essential 
gamestyle has tjeen done a thousand 
times. 

That aside. Roiling Ronny is a pretty 
groovy Mtfe game. It's easy to get used 
to and It's challenging, but not lmp<MS^ 
ble. Not quite ihe coolest dude in tovm, 
but certainly cooJ enough to thill out 
and do hts ihang with the Tool Posse". 
Whatever that means.

Th4 iwliting 



of \Mi pravidt t MEnd-U«Wlng tlhi^fjlan on JsiM livMl 



Thftse Ancient Qreelu knew a 
thing or two ^bout mythol- 
ogy didn'i they? M th(jst 
mcmst&Ti and mutents tMping about 
(hopping each othei' into little pieces. 
Mliant 

And of courje, ruling over all fhe 
monsters and rrutants was Satan. 
Exicept he (A/asn't 'cos the Grie^kj didn'i 
beiieve in Satan. They had efxxigh tiiot> 
ble nrom dll ttiE gFOufiiy gods up qji 
Otyrrtpuj, never mind having to put up 
wltnOiT^lt, 

im. whether they iwlpeved in tiim or 
not, for the purpoises of ttiij game 
Satan doei ewiit. Md what's tnore, he's 
taPien over the world. Gasp, Ves, ^tan 
has laten over the feur pianei of ews- 



tence and ppsted tons of hli srreggy 
minions in them to keep it that way, 
Loofo ll*.e 3 Job i<sf one of those tofse 
heroFrfies, 

Luckily, Greek mythology rj bursting 
at the seams vyitii lane hero types so its 
pretty hard to moan about how ofily 
one blolie has been lent tp do an 
army's job. That's the way the Andent 
a-eelts did things you iee. Somethlnti 
tn do with honour I suppose. 

PefsonaiSy, i'draUierjusJ "send in the 
tjoys' than hack and slash my way 
through countless demons and spooks, 
but then I'm a t^it useless at things like 
that, Perseus on the other hand, is 
great at Ihe oh) had^ing and slashing, 
so ifi him thaC you control. Ihe game (i 



simflar to Thunde* Jaws, also reviewed 
in this issue, in that the levels altetnate 
between a traditianaF scroiNng shoot- 
'eftHip and a ground-hajed horizontal 
bash-'ermjp. Also (ike Thunder Jaws, its 
not half bad. it's not ainaBng by any 
means, but it's a fun little blast, And 
hefe'iwhy.,. 

As you fjy through the firsc level, 
astride Pegasus, the enemy ?twn in to 
attach; in fairty jyedictable patterns but 
their sheef volume prevents it l>ecanv 
Ing too easy. Votj fight tack with fine- 
balls from your sword, which can of 
course t>e upgraded by coltecting 
eflOdjgh cash. Cash comes in ttie fsm 
of diamonds, which are left behind 
when a was^e of teddies are destroyed. 

The graphics are very scrvmptioijs 
indeed, with pient/ of colour, lightning 
flashes, bucket toads of parallax 
scrolling and some truly inaredibte ani- 
mation on Peggy NriKetf. As the levels 
progress, the bacJtground graphics 
becorrte more and more dazzling, right 
up ta (he suwling flames of Heft, 

The sound is well surted to the 
gariTe, as thunder punctuates the ejfpto- 
iions and 'zap' effeas. it all adds up to 
a preity intpresswe introdoction to the 
game. 

Onte you 've flovm arournJ for a bit, 
Pegasus dumps yoo on the ground and 
bogs otff Jw a bit. This leads into what 
we m the business cail the 'walking 
around levels'. The "walking around 
ievets' are just as imp* e^sive as the fly- 
ing bits. 

Perseus leaps and chops away at all 
manner of bogus beasties, ranging 
rrom scofpioni to hllef turJieys, with at! 
the enthusiasm of an NME reader with 
a harmnef in a room full of WL Hafnmer 
records. 

Every DOW and then you'll come 
across sometfiing bigger, tHb a massrve, 
(ifooling, blood encrusted hell hound. 
As ycMj isn pnabairfy Lfiderstand, these 



pictur? ot the lexy 
faachground JffpMcf 

fellas take a nght pasting iKfore then 
sod off, Along the way you'll also *} 
f over secret leveJs full of lovely di=f 
moftdi, ant! paths under and over r- 
variDUS hajards that face you. 

So, it's a scfoJIing shoot-'em-up. i: 
pretty good, and, «, thasfs it. On b^ 
arwe I'd say that Pegasus has ttie edc 
over Thunder Jaws for two reasof 
One. It's a tod niisr to too* at and tr 
graphics have ohviously had a lot : 
wot* put into ihem and two, it's that 
tie bit faster artd smoother which 
turn makes it a smrdgeon mon 
playable. 

If you're thinlgng of buying a shoff- 
'em-up this week, then you could e 
worse than to splash out on a copy t* 
Pegasus. Vefy pleasaot indeed.

no one wouFd cash his ctieques. It's no 
wonder that he threw aside alt 
thoughtj Dif becoming an adventurer 
and decided to stay at home and mvenE 
things instead. 

So the years passed and Maddog 
went about his inventing. He never 
thought to invent someihrng [hat 
would benefit mankind though, tike a 
CDDiputej that could figure out why 
people watch thmgi in whrch Jlmmif 
Tarbuck appears. Oh no. He invented 
Hxh useful terns as an atartn clock that

ot him. Now, whiJe 3tl this was going 
on, a terrible evil was sprea-dJng 
throwghout the land. As we atJ linew, 
terriWe evils do tend to spread through 
lands quite a kK, and more often than 
not wden they do tfiene's afways only 
one man vvho can stop it, 

Cjuess who it is this time? ifup, it's 
Maddog Williams. Ui it's up to you to 
^de Maddog through his quesi to rid 
the land of evil, save the damsel, make 
friends and influence people and so on. 

Vour mighty qi/est begins at hom«, 
with vefy little notion of what awaits 
yoo. Just like Monday morning in the

games of this ilk, I thlnH youll fir>d. Oh

The more astute of you wiil have 
afready seen oe screenshots and decid- 
ed that Maddog Williams loots more 
than a bit lilw the Sierra games, Welf, 
you'd be rfght: Ft is a hell of a lot lihe 
therri- The graphics, in particular, are a 
dead ringer for the J<ingj 
Quest series, with 
dteif chunky sprtes 
and colourful 
fairy laic back- 
grounds. 

The humoirr 
is there too,

■Would yoir beJieve that just 
dowf> the road from Maddog 's 
house is a satanic temple where 
they sacrifice vVgins with alarming 
regularity^ 

Don't think that I don't I'nlte the game, 

because I do, it's Just that Maddog's. 

siciemngly twee attitude is a

involving as this, rt really adds atmo- 
sphere if you can build tip some sort of 
retetionship with othm in (he gaane.

clues and kJ«as on how to progresi, and 
(tiis they do very wel. 

The sound is pretty dire. The music is 
distressingly trieepy and the fK are not 
what you would call inspiring. It's not 
bstS enough to spoil the game, but it's a 
ptly that more couldn't be done. 

On the simny sk>e. the graphics are

looking (ike thait cheery chikJhood hero, 
Bod, But thii doesn't really matter 
because the gemepfay is geared nwre to 
chin-stroking pondering, rather than 
franbc running ground. 

All in all thEf>, a wondeffuliy creamy 
little Pontefract-cake of a game. The 
puizles are tricky, but atlwarys blindingiy 
obvious tn the end, and (he graphics M 
off the atmosphere perfectly. 

ft's the sort of story (hat always seems

more to the wee ones than to die-hard

Hot off the pfuduction line, the

oE of the AiOOO; which wai last 
i biggest iJiilfinig poim, the AS 00 
fka ii ihf most exUting development 
h» tfie average Amiga owrter since the 
HiBBse of the' originai A50D. So what'i 
iic (£f)efenc«'? 

A500 OwrKR, much to rfwir despair, 
^ atwayi faced certain iimitationi, l-or 
i thing, ttie michine comes with oniy 
^^ a meg ot (:lijp RAM Mitiich cannot be 
tipanded without a

other, thtre'; no 
ly &t present of 
■jpgrading to Wort- 
Sfliich 2.D, which 
AJOOO Dwnen have 
bwn enjoying fof a 
j«4r now. The AiOO 
nus blows awdy 
these limitations, 
Md represents a

biby Amiga's capa- 

Fnoin the beginning of next ytv, lay 
Commodore, tf>E A500 Pius will com- 
pleteiy repiace the exiiting machine, 
Ihougli it \i alreacty dvailabit in certain 
Cartoon Ciassics bjndies, We soouiiged 
fun lirom Cordon Hanwood, and it was 
iuppli«d compltte with softvnra, mm- 
Ull, ind games. 

Quite why Lhe tajnch of the new 
oiKhint was so unfieralded no one 
teems to IcrKiw, ieast of ail Cemmodcire 
I* Suffice Eo say that Ifie new Amtga 
fas had the most low key entry into- (he 
UK market of aii of Commodore's 
rnacfiineSi, 

indeed, ma.ny recent AJOQ buyen 
h4ve distovered to their surprhe that

was treated as chip memory, and the 

machine suddeniy sported l.Slvlb - 
three times the previous limit! 

To utilise the souped-up trapdoorj 
Commodore will be releasing an AS01 
Plus expansion board for it, Designed to 
bfin^ the machine's memory up to a fuli 
2Mb of chip HAM, Ihe board wii! proba- 
biy be sold in rojghiy the same price 
bracket *J the existing ASOl , though at 
the moment it ts unciear whether there 
wil be any vvay of ehoosing what sort of 
memory the expnsian board mil add. 

As *n added bonus on the memory 
fnvn, ihe A50a Plus's upper RAJVl limit 
wiM now be 10Mb as opposed t& the 
9fcfc possible with the wigina! SOO. 

With Workbench 2.0 and the 
Eitunced Chip Set (ECS) odume several 
new screen modes. Pcijsibly the most 
usehri of these is the new "ProdLictivity" 



mode, which can produce excellent 
effects when uted with a mufeync mon- 
itor. 

Unlike Interface mode. Which requires 
a display enhancer to eliminate screen 
Hiclcer, Productivity mode will output a 
6AQx4&0 screen direct to a multisync 
with rto extra fiardware. 

The mode is not available without i 
multisync monitor, but it brings CAD 
and DTP doser to the ASOO by partially 
doin^ away with the need lor expensive 
flicker lixen. 



Stunning 



i 



Compatibility 

The new machine contains the Enhanced Chip Sei. aod so wiU suffer in its early 
months from a number of compali&ilily problems. Thtjtjgh Commodofe ma.de 

Workbench 2 fiOVI Ct.>de available on diiJi wme lime ago, some software houses 
hav* so far failed to code their prodiKti with the new Amugi in mind. 

It is still too early to tell exactly ttow many pfoqiarm and games wiB not run on 

the A500 Mus, but a preliminary mn through about two dozen garr>ei fOiF>d a few 
w+wch woyld not work, though on the bright side, Tennmalot 2 (the nymber one 
game at time of going lo press) and DPaint 4 woriied perfectly. 
I ()ok Out for Wt full report nejtt month, 



With interlace,, the highest screen modes 
now availabJe are a stunning IZBOk^U 
in SuperHires Interlaced, 64O>t960 in 
ProducBvrty Interlaced, and 10ftflx1024 
in A2<)i24 niode. The latter is available 
with only tour grey scales and only when 
using Ccmmodore's A2024 hi-res mooo 
monitor, but it is perfect for CAD and 
boosts the Amiga's seri<ous potential 
enormous^. 

The A500 Plus is supplied c&nnplete 
with the very latest Kickstart 2.04 ROM 
and Workbench 2M on disl^ so owners 
of the new machine will havie the drop 
even on A3000 users. There's not 
erwugh room Ihere to go through the all 
improvements offered by Workbench

Ihcter Iree iS/iftlay model 



2.04, but I'll attempt 
to cov^f some of the 
major points. 

The screen dis- 
play is now a cool 
and serious mi,K of 
blue, blacK, g'ey and 
white, and ail icons 
and screen gadgets 
have beer given a 3D 
look not unlike the 
'(A^indowi 3.0 syitem 
currently being used 
on PCs. Programs 
can now be viewed by icon, name, size 
Of the date the file was last altered,, thus 
offering the user faster Workbench 
screen updates and Mler windows with- 
out icons. 

And there's more... 

New 'Workbench preferences en^le the 
user to choose die style and sife of font 
used for icon names, screen text, and 
the system d^auit text. There is also an 
option to give the Workbench screen 
and windows their own "filled'" back- 
ground. The user can chwse from one 
of eight default patterns or design his Or 
her own, personalising their own 
Wortbench to a much greater degree. 

You can format floppies using the 
hitherto hard drive-only fast file system, 
thui increasing their effectiveness, iaue 
commands direct from Workbench by 
choosing the laecute Command option 
on the Workbench menu, or select 
enhrt groups of icons by dragging a boK 
round thern, then move them all at once 
holding the Shift key down. 

You can aliso select your own I ntuition 
preferences such IS the background 
/foreground key pressei (presently Left- 
Amiga-N and Left-Amiga-M), and even 
design your own icons with the excellent 
icon diesi^n program on ttte Extras dbk. 

Conclusion 

The Amiga 500 Plus and Workbench 
2.04 offer far too much to co^r in detail 
here, but if you find your appetite whet- 
ted by this ejiamiration, lefl necesjariiy 
brief by the aniva! of ihe ASOO PliH just 
before our going to press deadline, you 
could do a lot worse than read our full 
report in next month's issue, We'll be 
covering Worfibench 2,(H in more detail 
and will have a full compatibility test for 
all you Christmas shoppers.

itemi might need to tie kept perma-

floppies spin at r^atfvely law speeds 
(100 rev/min) and, because it doesn't 
lake too long for a spinning disk to 
teach iti correct wad/write speed, the 
motijr ■on a normal floppy drive comes 
on just prior to the read/write opera- 
lion. Hard disks rotate at much higher 
speeds {A600 rev/min} SO it Is not feajl- 
ble to switch the motors on and off 
between disk operations. 

The higher speed, plus the fact that 
the disJi is continually rotating, means 
that hard disk machines can be more 
susceptible to physical damage. 
Additiorully, mains transien-ts and more 
serwus power <ntemjptioris may occur 
as mtglht any rujmber of other mishaps,,' 

Steady power 

A Kt o< tjackups will cure the proWem

Many ecKrtpanies go one step further 
Wid opt (or UPS (Uninterruptible Power 
Supplies) units which automatically 
switch to battery power if a mains fail-

normally. The only disadvantage of this

Paul Overaa looks 

at the issues of 

hard drive security, 

backups and 

sensible 
management 

hardware matfurKtion is not the only 
issue to be considered. Malicious com- 
puter viruses have the potential to 
cause serious system damage and, 
unfortunateiy, these types of programs 
are appearing with ever-increasing 
regularity. 

The virus situation li bad e though 
with floppy drives. For hard disk users 
ttie prospect of t>eing the recrpienl of a 
virus ii a potential: rsightmare. The best 
policy is simpty not to use, or let others 
use, unauthorised tunvettcd) software, 
and never download and test public 
domain software with the hard disk 
connected! 

Backup or pack Up 

The unwritten njle of data safety is sim- 
pler aisume that whatevei" can go 
wrong will go wrong. In many cases 
this fust nwarss baclting up files as fre- 
quently as they change and the i-mpli- 
cation here, which can save more than 
a little time in practice, is that if a file 



doesrt't change from day to day, you 
do not need to back it up every ^^V- 

Which of your files do not change 
from day to day? Perhaps the customer 
mailing lists for your particular business 
are only updated once a month - in 
such cases you would only need to 
back up dvose flies once a month. 

Data files 

Programs are afKSther example of files 
which do not need to be routinely 
backed up. The hard disk copies will 
have come from their master release 
dbks and hard disk copies are therefore 
easily regenerated if the rveed arises. 

The main problem of course, as far 
as backup is concerned, is not pro- 
grams or fairly static data files, it Is the 
data files whkh change daily. As hard 
disk storage capacity has increased over 
the years, so the proWems of file man- 
agement have become more difficult. 

A number of companies now offer 
utili^ty programs which can not only 
simplily backup operations, but can 
provide menu-driven facilities for fast 
copying^ compresslfig and archiving 
arid even rearranging fragmented files 
Eo improve effective disk access times, 
Cervtrai Coast ioftware's Quarterback A 
& a fine example of such programs. 

Little people boxes 

(f many users are using the saiift- 
machine it is usually best to give each ' 
user their ovvn personal workspace for 

putting things which they might otfter- 
wise have been tempted to throw into 
the root directory. 

Within thii space they can of courae 
create their own directory structures 
but this philosophy should not be over- 
done tjecause creating extended direC' 
tory structures will slow down the file 
operatio^tj - after all, at the end of the 
day the operating system has to search 
directory structures in much the same 
way as a human wauldl 

It Is incidentally worth pointing out 
that For many business and other 
important uses, it is wise not to store all 
your backups at one (ocation. Vou may 
have an excellent multiple-generation 
Ifioppy-based or tape-streamed data 
backup scheme in operation, but if all 
your backups are kept in the same 
place then they will all be vulnerable to 
tire, theft and so on. 

Backup of my hard disk book 
manuscript files, for instance, is bated 
on ar> additional three generation 
floppy disk scheme, but as chapters are 
finished they are passed to the pub- 
lisher who both keeps and prepares ilur- 
ther copies which are then 
subsequEntliy given to a third party lor 
safekeeping, 

A few hours, spent planning for the 
worst is a small price to pay when you

the latest threats. 

Tlie Xeno virus, wrtiith made i& int 
appearance towards the end of 1990, 
"Vii a foretaste of what was tg ome 
=revioiJily, many viruses had lowght 
~iefely to replicate iheFTtietvet n^

■ jTttI retentJy. The new viruses, 
N^«t-.r^. jfe more and more designed 
»» ciuK chaos and ineparable floppy 
« hmt drive heartache, 

Xeno will infect every executable 
pn^Mn on the target iVM, given the 
diince. md wirll actually alter the pro- 
f^nTQ 10 that they still run. As so<w as 
* dinctCM7 Is listed or DIR-ed, every 
ewcutable lile in the directory will be 
Mededi which rne*ni Xetw can spread 
Bei<nldfNc ItiKiugh a hard drive. 

Second wave 

Nu Kioner had Xeno hit the scene than 
fwwi arrived of file viruses $uch as 

TrweKng Jjck and Centurions, then the 
Saddam virus - the ^A^orst erf the lot to 
4iii 

Like the Lamer l!eturn file virus, 
Saddarr hides himself on an infeded 



disk as the disfc-vilrdalor file in the L; 

difectory, He then sneatily alters the 
bitmap SD that unless Saddam is run- 
ning, the disk will appear to be unvall- 
diite<^. 

This causes the disk-validator {a.k.a. 
Saddam) to be invoked, tfini funning 
the viniSj which then alters a selection 




■^r in mcrTKify, 



of data blo<ks so that AmigaDOS won't 
recognise them without Saddam. When 
the virus finaJly goes pop, jo does your 
entire disk, wiped out with a cheery 
message to tfie effect that our Middle 
Eastern friend has done his job. The 
condition! under which Saddam will 
wipe a disk hawe rot ai yet been deter- 
mined, 

Roman ruin 

The Centurions vifus ii a little less 
destructive than Saddam. It will tilde in 
memory until it spots a disk acceu 
then, if the disk is write-enabled, will 
(opy itself onto the firil command in 
the startup sequence - most com- 
monly the SETPATCH command - 
adding 3,?1 £ t>yte^ to its size. 

When activated, after copying itself 
ten times, Centurions changes the 
mouse pointer to a smily face with a 
scroJSing message. In comnHsn with alt 
Other viruses which attack the startup 
sequence. Centurions will have no 
effect ofi commercial disks which don't 
use the AmigaDOS system, nor on data 
dislts which have no startup sequerKe. 

Jack the tad 

Travelling Jack came onto the scene at 
about the same time as the Centurions 
virus, but seems to be more danwiging, 
initial reports are that it will copy itself 
to every file your machine reads until 
actiwsted, at which polrit it is unclear 
what It will do. As a link virus, of course, 
It ii automatically dangerous when it 
appends itself to files. 

All infected files run the risk of being 
corrupted rather than simply altered >■

Protection methods 

We've said it before, and we'll say it 
again - if you've any hope of staying

King killers 

|u5l aboui; tfi-e most useful all-tound virvs killer we couW llnd wai |ohn Vetdlhuis'i 
Virus Checker vS,26 vtfhicli, by ar amazirtg coincidence, was included on lait 
month's «»v^disl(. It will deiecl .*ll the hie viruses mcniioned in this article and ,i 
iew more besides, and has beer constantly upgraded to keep in line with as 
many new boot virusei as possible. 

It'll the only killef we know ol which will delect and renwve ttie Saddam vims, 
and comes with a new program, called FixS^tldam, wtiicti will attempt t<* repair 
any data blocks altered by the n^ruj. In use, it will mullilaik without complaint 
arvd checks all newly inserted iloppiei for both boot block and file viruses. 

Another vefy usehjl ctnEclter, by virtue of its thirty second vector check, is Mike 
Hansel'i KJllDaViruslll. Afreebie on our March disk, this program recognises s rel- 
atively small number of viruses,, but it has the indispensible ability to Kan mem- 
ory ev^ry thirty seconds, detect any vector shinnaneginSy and alert the user to 
suspicious actisity. 

It was through KDV's vector check that we were first alerted to the Saddam 
virus, passed on to us innocently enougti by a contributor who had contracted 
the virus from a PD \ibmy. When KDV went b*nanas, ^e made a thOfoiigli 
inspection of the disk and the memofy address relened to by KDVi alert and 
found the firit signs of vrtiat we tealissd was an entirely new virus. 

A vector alert will motie often than not include an address in memory where it 
has detected the suspect program. II you have a memory monitor, you can 
examine the contents of memory at and around; that address. In Saddam's case 
this will reveal a ttneen full of hen gobbledigook wtth the wofd SADDAM in Ascii 
text somewhere near the end. 

When Xext such as this appears in your memory, you know you-'vt got prob- 
lems. A combination of KDV, or anothe* constant memory checking program, 
and Virus Checker which, if you're reading this mag you ihouid by row own, 
should be defence enoug^i against the majority of viruses. 



your disk^ 
Always re- 
member thai 
every single 
new diil, no 
mattet w'here it comes from, is a poten- 
tial virus carrier, even those bought 
direct from PD libraries or magazines, 
some of whom have had probfems with 
viruses on their coverdisks. 

Moit importantly of all, anm yourseff 
with an up to date virus klHer as soon as 
possible. Don't rely on the lew com;- 
mercial killefs arotirvd and don't stick by 
VlftisJl, The fomier are hopetessty out of 
date, and the latter has been 
superceded by the recent wave of file 
vinjies. 

A very useful toot when faced with a 
program you think, may be a viais is a 
he*! editor/viewer iuth aiS the share' 
ware program MewZap. Using one of 
these, you can scan (he mKhtne code 
contents of i fiile in search of any Ascii 
text, and can often find Incrinninating 
evidence of a ^srogram's intentiofrs, 

Many viruses are written by people 
whose chief desire is to be noticed, and 
they will usiuaily contain Ascii text 
denoting the fact that f^v have a viais 
in youf machine. The SCA boot block 
iHJius, for example, contains the Ascii 
text; "Something wonderful has hap- 
pened - your Amiga Is alive! And even 
Ijetter - Some of your disks are infected 
with a vimil" This text is present in the 
boot block as simple Ascli, snd can be 
spotted with ease. 



File vetting 



Decent virus killers wil! include an 
option to view boot block code, but 
there are none wtiich will do the same 
with file vsinjs-es. Again, Biey will usually 
have no facility for viewing sections of 
memory thought to be infected with a 
virus, though they vifill usually indicate 
the memoiy address in question. 

In conjunction with your hen viewer, 
then, it would be' a good idea to find a 
memory monitor such as Eye,, from the 
March CovefOisk, When the vims killer 
warns you of s^ispicious behaviour at * 
certain memory address^ rur* your imon- 
itor, skip to the address, and have a 
jTHMp at the contents. 

When Saddam first paid us a visit, 
KDVIII and ZeroVifUi ! prompted alerts 



and we found ttie 
words 5 ADD AM VIRUS 

among a chunk ot code 
at memory address 
idbelafl. It was onfy 
then that we realised 
that we had a new 
virus on wr hands,, and 
took the appropriate 
defensive measures, 
The use of hex editors and memory 
monitors in conjunction with virus 
killers in the detection of Saddam 
shows the usehrlness of keeping a close 
eye on what your machine is doing^ 
and of not igrKsring any Symptoms o' 
infection, 

Erik tlie Guru 

Erik lOvendahl Sflnensen has been run- 
ning a vims bank and global anta-virus 
campaign since the first Amiga viruse* 
reared their ugly fife headers, Withotit 
his help, and the efforts of others like 
him, we wcHild know a great deal less 
about vimses and their disposal. 

Without the self-financed work sf 
people like Erik - a.k.a. Speedy 
Gonzales - articles such as this could 
never be written and the Amiga 
Cflrtiptifjr»j CoverDisk would stand littie 
chance of remaining as completely free 
of viruses as it now is. We asked him for 
his opinion on the virus nnermce as it 
currently stands; 

"It's getting a lot worse," he told us 
"and the number of viruses on tf^- 
Amiga is doubling every twefve morrtf 
At this rate there will be 10,000 differs 
Amiga vinjses tiy 1 995]" 

What can be done about the ipmc: 
of viruses? 

"I am working with representati^i 
of the European Community, who cor 
suited me on the virus question. The^- 
should be tC regulations concerni' 
viruses pretty soon," 

So writing viruses will be treated a^ - 
ttime? 

"Ves, most definitely. It Is alreadv . 
crime in some countries, but we hope 
to create European consistency on 
way viruses are treated," 

The sooner virvs authors are made I 
realise that their activities are crimii 
and destnjclive, and that they will 
punished when caught, the better. 
you know anyone who's written 
deliberately spread a virus with inl* 
to cause damage, shop the so-and-; 
There's a man at New Scotland Yarr 
computer crime unit wait- 
ing to hear from yOU.

After a short break the old PD purveyor returns with pockets fit to burst thanks to a 
mountain of sensational software. Read on as Paul Austin reveals all,., 

UBOC 



Well I'm back, after conva- 
lescing from a nasty PD 
mountaineering accident. 
This dreadful ej(perience was 
caused by being buried alive 
under a landslide of scrolly 
demos. 

I was forced to chew my 
own toenails to survive but 
before ail hope was lost a res- 
cue team of 1 3 year otds acci- 
dentally dug me out while 
searching for a rich seam of 
vector graphics and bouncy 
chrome balls. 

I'm telling you it was touch 
and go for a while but thank- 
fully I'm OK. Now it's all over 
we can get straight down to 
the serious side of the PD 
with a look at this month's 
extra special utility selection. 



Dedicated utilities 



Because the Anigi PD scene is becom- 
ing more polarised by the mofnerit I fe*l 
an extia cat&gory in the ijtilid» seciaon 
is m orderj -and as a resLilt this \i 'A. 

One of (h« ttitmes preiiently in 
vogue ii ihst of the "superdisk". These 
disks art designed to replace the work- 
bench with Either an all-new, all-glim- 
our front end Of alternatively with a 
mega-crunched utjlity-patked esitrava- 
ganza. 

Our very own WoriStation disk is a 
good «xsnnple of the tatter but if it's 
glamour you're alter Mike Dood son's 
'^Indowsbench is perfect for all you 
WofWwnch 2 winna-b«. 

Windowsbench 

WindowsbefKh as the name suggests is 
a combination of the original 
Workbench interface with a toucti of 
the iPC's Wtndowi 3 and Commodore's 
Wotfebeni^h 2 all mixed together. 
Sound's great doesn't it? But befdre 




llyau/r iteoiiriij Mr n r.|f (if ylarmmr and a MWJt Of osiginfsiity fJiii ail new frOfl h f nd rjMjW J^T Wenl' 



you fill in the cheque, remem.ber it's 
only a look-alike and \n fact the inter- 
face itself doei no more Itian the origi- 
nat Woricbench. 

True It Is miKh more attractive, wttti 
patterned backdrops and Workbench 2 
style icons but there's certainly notfiing 
new in the puil downs, rm group selec- 
tion tool, and terlainly no ej<tra display 
modesj in fact none of the Workbench 



Spec rapaint 

Good old AmOi Is responsible rw many great things 
within the puWic domain bv\ perhaps one of its best 
attributes is. its- ability to bestow escelle*>t graphics to 
its creations, If It can produce soFtware with excellent 
graphics, if s logical that the software iisetf shouW be 
able to do the same. 

As a lesult there's a whote range of Dpaint dones, 
all created with Amos, and Spectrapaint is argoaWe 
the best of them. It's true iitat non of the clones 
match up to the original in all artistic departmenti 
but some and especially Spectrapaint do have the old 
master licked on occasions. 

As a result the combination of Spectrapamt an:! 
Dpaint makes a powerful team that can swAp and 
change images adding tfwir own artiitic (fair to the 
creation as it's handed back and forth. 

Spearapaint doesn't boast some of the subtleties of Dpaint but it does offer things like pattern fills and fan line effects, 
along with a few other handy Options which make it Dpaint's perfect pattern. Ail Images are isved in either hi- or lo-res with 
the usual array of availaWe palette i\i^ - perfect (of transferring between packages. 

Ail the painting eisentials are included and considering its power and price it puts many a comnwfcial package to shame, 
Tbe disk is available from PuWIt Dominator, disk number pdom, 5 DO. Tel 0279 7S7692 between office hours.

2 extras 1.3 users would kill for. If you 
want Workbench with a face-lift it's 
ideal and to Sweeten the pot a few 
Workstation styie goodies have been 
thrown in for good nrieasufe such as 
SID, Fii<disk, Iconmasber and so on, 

Ifi obvious a lot of work has gone 
into the graphics with animated point- 
ers and designer window gadgets, JO 
the choice is yours, the power of the 
Workstation or the pretty pictures of 
Windowsbench. 

Both the program and documenta- 
tion disks are available from N.B.5., Tel

PD for DTV 

if you're one of the grownng band of 
camcorder-crazy Amiga owners, you'll 
kwe the TV Graphics disk from A.B.P.D. 
This original concept in the PD wodd 
provides a whole range of high quality 
lo-res backdrops plus assorted shapes 
which are perfect for anyone employ- 
ing a genlock. 

The disk contains 20 separate images 
and fof the pitilui price of 110 George 
Baitey will send you another 40 screens 
full of excellent graphics. 

Clip art is nothing new to the Amiga 
but TV Graphics has a specilic aiin vifith 
most of the images either being Icon 
style cut-outs or backdrops complete 
with black window areas ready to 
accept genlocked images, Another pos-

After the run-down of the designer

com piJationi for those little gems that 
will change your life, the umiverse, and 
everything, or at least solve that nig-

for monthsi.

when you do invest in any of the soft- 
ware mentioned, 

First on the Hit are two very hafKly 
utilities hidden away on Fred Fish disk 
378, The first of the two is a useful 
device renamer, n^mety DevRen which 
works an any mounted device and 
could for e»;jimp<e rename the exlenial 
drive on a 2000 fram iHZ: to dfl :. 

The second spotlight falls on MachlEI 
which Is a mouse »ccekrator with * dif- 
ference, including hgt^tcjeys, sun mouse 



features, cSick to front, popcii, til3e bar 
and clocd complete with iti own BBS 
online charge accumulator All that plus 
AAexx support. What more could a 
nsdent need? 

The next disk on the list has to be 
number 1183 from 176it which for a 
company usually ass>ociaied with games 
and sc'olly demos is CHcellent. Five 
impressive utjjities and a card game are 
incfud«d but the star of the show has to 
be InputLock which Is a dream come 



true fcH" any Amiga-owning parents Out 
there, 

InputLock as the name suggests is i 
method of locking up &te machine via a

Public Dominator could have the 
answer to perhaps the most popular of 
Amiga problems, namely printing. 
Prinistudio ii an intuition tjased general 
purpcKse print utility that can print text 
with a variety of options. 

Several graphic formats are Sup- 
ported plus an option to print whcrie or 
part crf a picture. Full screens and win- 
dows can also be captured and saved as 
IFF files if required, Palettes can be 
adjusted and the usual array of printing 
parameter defined. 

The disk is aviilable from Public 
Dominator or any of the larger libraries 
which stock the Fred Fish collection.

Amiga in business 



Considering tfiat the storige and sorting of data is 
perhaps the primary use for a computer, the Amiga is 
sadly lacking in cheap databases and credit c-ontrol 
programs. In the commercial market you have the 
choke of a few program:! such as Prodata and per- 
sonal finance manager but both of these will cost. 

Fortunately for the PD community Keith Grant has 
come to the rescue with two truly excellent packages 
that more than match up tn the costly commercial 
alternatives, 

Tbe firat of the two is AmiBase which is far from 
new but has recent!^ undergofK an excellent revi- 
sion. Version 3,76 is the latest in the line and is by 
any standard a classic piece of PD, The old version 
took the fonn of a fiuge tump of code which sat in 
memory gobbling up valuable space and seriously 
restricting storage capacity. 

TTils all new update is completely receded and as a 
rKuft all the necessary data manipulation is done via 
modules wfiich load up on demand complete with 
their own interface, which asks simple questiofls and 
produces powerful resutts, such as sorting, amiending, 
renammg in fact anything and everything you'd 
expect OF need. 

The interface is on a par with anything on the 
Amiga and makes the drudgery of database manage- 
ment a pleaiure, well almoit, Atl the usual options ane 
available, plus a whole rartge of power features which 
even some commercia.1 packages can't contend with. 

All the records are heW in memory so thert's no 
waiting around as files are loaded and saved. All in all 
it'i i masterpiece and If you want a database this is

the on-e to buy or attempt 

to beat. 
The second of Keith's 

creations is the equally 
impressive AmiCash. Now 
we ail know that t>alancing 
the budget is about as 
interesting as reading the 
Other Amiga mags but 
Uncle Keith even manages 
to breath a little life into 
this painftully dull stibject. 

AmiCash started life as a 
method of keeping Keith's 
fluctuating finances under 
control and from those 
humble beginnings 

AmiCash has become a 
complete cjish control sys- 
tem which automatically 
tallies up all your rncomfngs 
and outgoings whilst detail- 
ing the individual transactions by both date, amount 
and description. 

Once the Initial figure and date is entered new 
transactions are added by simply clicking on the 
appropriate Icon in the main menu. This automati- 
cally assign! the correct description to the trartsac- 
tion. All thaf s needed is the date and amount and if s 
all over. 

After each addition the running total is calculated 
and the entire list of up to 300 records can be dis- 
played and scrolled 
through as and when 
required. A whole list of 
entry types are available 
and any ejttfa r»otej can be 
inserted thanks to the 
Amend optioni,

^M pleasant graphics go a 
long way to easing the

agony of a dwindling balance. My only COmptaint is 
the lack of predefined debits and credits which woufd 
activate a predefined transaction on' the appropriate 
date. 

With this addition the mortgage could be 
deducted aulomaticaliy and the wages added on 
pay-day. Even without this option AmiCash is still an 
excellent utility and perhaps I'm askin>g just a tittle to 
much considering the ridiculously low cost of the 
software. 

While we're dn the subject of finances please, 
please, please make your donation to Ke^th and in 
fact any of the authors who've create yaur favourite 
PO and Shareware. 

Keith and people iiice him are the soul of the PD 
and in the case of Ami6ase and AmiCash you'll prob- 
ably recover your donation in a couple of months 
anyway, all thanki to the hondreds o<f unpaid hours 
Keith sp*nt treating and perfecting his software. 

Both Amiftase J, 75 and AmiCash are available 
from Amiga nuts United on O703 7fi56S0

almost everything it's a revamp of an

Pong is the grandfathei of all arcade

bats and a ball are all that link this par- 
dcutar veirsior to its elderly predecessor. 
This new venian has all the necessary 
whisfles and bells of a modern Amiga 
claiiic and would go unnoticed as PD

The basic aim of the gamf is identi-

opponent stranded and jcreamiing as 
the ball disappear out of his or her end 
of the court. To adJ a little spice to the 
challenge ill manna- of special features

Hollywood trivia 

With the explosion of Trivia gar»es, no 
pub is without its own team and any 
self respecting coftee-table always has a 
huddle of irate pseudo-inteHectuals 
arguing over the cost of Durex in Ihe 
mid sixties. After all, the outcome of 
such heated argument could mean an 
extra cheese and lefs face it what's a 
little bbodsfved betvwen friends? 
After this particular virus had 



Yes folks, this month it's the attack of the golden oldies and 
yet another member of the Arcade Pensioners' Association 
has hobbled in under the guise (A Phase I!. 

The author probably wofv'l take to kindly to this particular 
description hui whether intended or not he has created yet 
another scramble clone with the odd bit of R-Type throvwn in 
f« good measure. 

Even thoifgh Phase II Is less than original Wi stMI. a strong 
contender for the PO Came of the Mdiith with the fjmiliar 
scramble horizontal scrotling and ft-Types weaponfy blasting 
from every orifice. Extra weaponry is amassed by the collec- 
tion various power-u ps which do thetr best to fill you lull ol 
holes before hand- 
ing over the goods. 

Like many cheap 
and cheerfal 
games, Phase tl is 
falling into the all 
too familiar trap of 
licence-ware agnee- 
ments. In this par- 
ticular case VF are 
marlceting Phase as 
'exclusive-ware' 
which in real terms 
translates to three 
auid or forget it. 



r 




exduiive-ware remain a mystery but I'd say that Phase II 
should be treated as a kind of licence-ware so distfibution 
should be left to Vf if you enjoy your freedom. 

On the gameplay side, Phase 11 is impressive with three 
levels of Increasingly tricky fMfflJIait scrolling and hoards of 
baddies launching theii" annoury from all manner of enemy 
ships and ground based guns> some of which wave their tiw- 
rets threateningly as random shots rain into the already 
crowded skaes. Other features Included death-dealing bub- 
bles which expand when shot at and can soon enguH your 
tiny crafL 

On the downside Phase H isn't the slickest game in the 

graphic depart- 
ment and the 
pedestrian speed 
can be a bit fruS' 
tratJng, but never- 
theless the game is 
easily worth the 
asking prke-

connotations of 



infected the coffee-tables of ttie UK (t 
wasn't long before the computers (ell 
to the trivia disease. Endless board 
game conversions appeared and nO¥* 
the infection has reached the PD, with 
Hollywood trivia is a prime examp>le. 

As the name suggtsts the subject 
matter is of straight from the Barry 
Monmao school of usdess infflrmation. 
There's a choice of categories varying 
from Star Trek M and new, IVI*A*S*H, 
Star Wars, Television, Music, Indiana 
jonei and the Hitchhiker's guide to the 
Calaxy, 

Each of the above have a list of fifty 
questions which when inswered cor- 
rectly reveal a myiter^ celebrity, thanks 
to a shrunken mono screen shot which 
is revealed bit by bit as tfie questions 
are answered . 

If you're a complete wimp you can 
ask for a hint and it that still leaves you 
stumped you can sell out completely 
and ask for the answer. 

The game uses the usual multiple^ 
choice format with a selection of four 
possible answe« for each category. The 
only real problem is the lack of available 
questions which appear to be limited to 
fifty. 

This makes life just a predictable 
when you've played each category 
more than once, as you'fe asked the 
same iselection over and over again. 

All in all Hollywood trrviia is a good 
buy and t>ecomes even more attractrve 
thanks to the inclusion of some excel- 
lent games such as Connes which as 
the name suggests is a Connect four 
variant 

The next extra, namely Klondike, is 
possibly the most popular game ever to 
be given away on our CoverDiik (Inci- 
dentally we also gave aw^ Conftex, so 
check ymir disk box before you invest), 

The last of the fab four is another 
coffee-table dassic, namely Yatz whkh 
has had more SlJeHings than Mississippi 
but neverthedess still remains a must for 
tsoard game fanatics.

All eigfit garrtes are crammed oo to

A classic creation 

( to you the phra» "modem pop cul- 
lureTls i contradiction in termi, the 
nejct musical master^ete might be just 
what you're looking for. 

To commemorate \99^ being the 
aicentenary of the death of WoWgang 
Amedeui Mozart, High Gammon has 
produced a double disk collectier) of 
Vtozart's four iiorn concertos which 
contain all the movements for each 
piece, which can be played either a 
individual movementi or as i whole. 



Because such a mammoth taik couldn't 
easily be achieved using the usual 
sourid sarnpte method, all the instm- 
ments are produced using the ijiiJch 
more memory efficient synthesis 
method- This does mean a sacftfice in 
sound quality but benefits from a huge 
Increase in potential sounds. 

If you're a fan of the classks and are 
willing to iacrifice a little fidelity for 
musical quality, Hugh's creations will 
come as a breath of freih air in the 
smoky atmosphere of Amiga dance 
music. Anyone who appreciates accu- 
rac)f and a toving attention to the works 
of a master will love the commendable 
efforts of Mr Gammon. 

The disks are available from 17 Blit 
on 0924 366982. numbers U-97 and 
12SJB.

Demo corner 



First op this month is a mixture of 

graphics and some quite strancie music. 
called finrno's Box i. The demo begns 
*ith a superb animation of Dr Sntjggles 
(remember him?) along with the thane 
music to that great cartoon. 

The SKond part of the demo con- 
sists of a clock, whose hands can be 



controlled by moving the [oystick. &y 
doing so you can access a whole 
plethora of brilliant tunes and even a 
"heavy breather" tune (less said about 



that one tine berterl). The demo comes 

on two disks and is worth every penny 
just tor the theme music. 

The next demo is an animation of a

certain Mr Potato Head, who just so 
happens to hav« a head i hsped like a 
potato (well blows me down, Olive!), 
Ttie animation is very well done and 
even has a nice funky tune 
to go with it. 

After searching through 
millions or vectors and 
ic roily messages I fwnd a 
Iruly original demo, ED- 
20? The Revenge, Not just 
an ego trip for the author 
but an interactive psycho 
blast-'em-up in the true 
spirit of Robocop, 

The demo starts with a 
thumping beat to get your 
toe; a-tapping and then lo 
and behold ED 209 
.ippeari - tvot an ordinary 
iD-309 but an ED-209 
with an attitude - a very 
bad attitude. Vou 
promptly grab your Joy- 
stick to set the demo in 




*• motion. You move ED ilowdy acrosi Ihe 
screen Itfl to right, whiflst reading tl^e 
rear wall full of graffiti greeti, OK, noth- 
■ ing special about that you nnlghT thirk, 
but wait until a Teenage Mutant Ninja 
Turtle appears and yoj let rip with the 
Ftre tyutton decimating the turtle into 
tiny biooditainedtMts. 

Add anottier three Turtles, datinar, a 
rolmt and one of those annoying bat- 
tery operated yapping dogs and you're 
well on your way into a laughtef-fiHed 
psychotic spectacular. 

After you pais the Turtles and 
Batman you get to a ihady looking 
charscLer who asks you for a passwond 
which is hidden In the graffiti chat 
you've passed ori the way. Cet it wrong 
and you're in trouble, a the shady 
dude pulls out a huge weapon and 
blasts you and Eildlie back, to the begin- 
ning . A sicky's essential and it comes 
with a whole host of extra demos, teo. 

We certainly noticed the next 



l/Kftir fMat 

graphic liind of demo - It's graphic in 
more ways Lhan one!. It fs called Mint 
Conditicn and is rather risqu^, contain- 
ing various cartOOrty jfiimaEioni. In fact 
some of them are quite un-fiiC|ue, like 
one whith lookf identical to Kick Off 
(which is very funny indeed) and some 
other childlike jokes transformed into 
animations, 

But then you get to the digitised pic- 



tures of ttie infamous Roy "Chubby* 
Brown wth some of his blue jokes dot- 
ted around the screen, and several 
more equally dubious demos, If y(3u are 
broad-minded then this is certainly for 
you - we had a good chuckle at it in 
the office - but definitely not one to 



Notes, lines and spaces 



The first of this month's music disks features a bniliant remix 
ot the Shamen's h'tove ony Mountain by Zeff of top pop 
combo- Four Smail Custards^l). The music is very well put 
logelher and I wotjldr'tibe lurprised if Zefif used the samples 
that the Shamen provided with their latest album. 

Whilst we ane on the Subject of hardcore techno music 
disks, another COupl-e have fallen into my lap this month. The 
firit ditk Js ap'tly name Hardcofe TKhm Disi: 1 and features 
three great remixes - ChatSy by Prodigy, T99 by Anasthasia 
and Cubif 22 by fslight in Motion. 

The diik has a fairly good intro - it looks as though it was 
done on the Red Sector demo-maker, but nevertheless it is 
^W fairly good. 

The secorvd disk is called Techno Aaock I by Zee which 
also features Chariy and also contains another two rawstastic 
tunes - ifw tvefytody (poptastk) and Proire i (douWe pop- 
tastie). The disk loads up and transforms your workbench 
eoloitrs into a dazzling array of bright greens and pinks - 
very tastelul, I don't think. 

1f you can get over the shock of the colcurs then this disk 
is well worth adding to your collection. It is not PD but 
Ikenceware and costs £1.50, so that means you can buy it, 
but you can'i copy it. 

Stop the presses, these next dislis are as new as new can 
be. The first is yet another Shamen Move any Mounlain 
remix, which comes on two disks and needs two drives. 
AJlhough the tune is not as long as the remi* mentioned 



above, it contains some very high quality samples (could it 
be that they have also taken them from the album?). The 
se<ond demo is definitely the better of the two, but if you 
are a bag Shamen far, get them both. 

However, this month's Top Tune goes without a doubt to 
Tony Morgan with his superb rendition Oli the Utah Saint's 
dance classic "What Can You Do for Me?". The tune was 
done on ME.D and contairis some lunktastic samples ioclud- 1 
ing the "do da da" sample which the Saints bonowed from i 
the Eurythmics. 

The actual song is very well put together artd contains 
some ahosolutely ravetastic stereo panning whkh has to be 
heard to be believed. One of the best tunes I've heard for a 
long time - 1 1 out of 1 tor this one, Tony,

Software authoring packag^i

an iUthorin^ syitem, you can tell the

Spotted the white lie yet? 0¥^ 'fea 
up lime, not many of us have iwim- 
mlng poots to lounge around, but the 
point is still the same. The purpose Oi 
any software authoring pacMge (SAP,

work out nf i^ri^itingi anything from 
apptitations l* games, and they have 
ban jomething of a wet dream in 
designer's circles for yeiri, 

SAPs for saps 

Only recently have SAPs begun to 
ap^ar in any u$able form on rriicrH}- 
computEn, and only with the release of 
packages llk€ Can Do and Foundation 
have home users been offered the 
chance to get In on the act and wnte 
their own software with litlk' or no 
knowledge of machine code. 

If you purchased our October issue, 
you'll have r^ceivied an introdixtion to 
SAPs by way of the excellent CanDo 
demo disk we supplied with that issue. 
The heart of CanDci is iti abiMy to gen- 
erate long sections of code lo JfHtrprct 
what the user has told the prognm by 
way of mou&e clicks. 

CanDo offers most of the fe«tLim •

only true SAP afvaiiable lor the Araig« 
until the releaie of Impylie'j 
Foundation program.

Ten iniTiutes 

As long a.s the graphics and sound 
effKti aiready exist, you can just pull 
them into the program, design buttons 
Of windows for Ihem^ and hack the 
wti«?fe kjt togethef t*n rninytei. As you 
defve deeper into the program, how- 
evier, you start to run into FoufKlation's 



vtHl} Mrtff (iu! 
FAST-tatk scripting language, and at 
this point it's time to take a look at the 
program's Structure. 

The prefix "hyper" has been added 
to just about every word in the dictio- 
nary over the last couple of years. SirKe 
Apple's Macintosh started the ball 
rollirjg with HyperCard, there have 
beer HyperSlack, HyperTeKt, and even 
HyperMedia (just in case you didn't 
find MultiMedia confusing enough), A 
lot of hypef , eh? 

Fotindafion is designed to offer the 
user-friendliness of a HyperCard system 
by building its applications, callecf 
stacks, out of frames and backdrop 
objects, The user opens a stack, then 
adds as many frame* as requifwi for the 
application being designed. For exani- 
ple, a tourist information stack coded 
usirtg Foiind^tion might contain an ini- 
tial frame acting a: a guide to the con- 
tents of the information frames, then a 
sefies of other frames containing infor- 
mation on the local acea. Voii could uie 
scanned photographs of local land- 
marks, fragments of sampled Speech to 



f&ai^etlan't < urins/ pond ti a launch pwS tar 
Youf jUk^ mUttr Ihao an wHSrxg vrs 

highlight the local accent and lan- 
guage, and even sound elfecti of, for 

instance, a steam traim if your area con- 
tains a railway museum, By adding 
frames one at a time, the uier can build 
up an extensive application without 
breaking into a sweat. 

You might be thinking this sounds 
suspiciously like a descnption of CanDo, 
and you'd be right, Although 
Foundation Is based on the fKotic 
sounding ffyperCard, its stacks and 
frames are very similar in principle to 
CanDo's decks and cards. Where 
Foundation differs mainly is in its flexi- 
bility and its support for fiyperTeKL 



Flexibility 




U-nlike CanCto, which sacrifices speed to _ 
extreme friendliness (let's face it - 
CanDo will do everything eKCept marty 
yflur siitet), Foundation strays a little 
more on the sjde of design flexibility. 
There are two modes of operation. 
Browse and Modify, but no vast array 
of subsections as in CanDo. With 
Foundation, everything can be accom- 
plished Iram a single screen. 

In modity mode, the full screen is 
visible, with all options on three pull 
down menus. Rather than relegate 
screens, vyindowSj, scripting, and button 
definition to their own little panels, 
Foundation enablet the user to start 
with a generk object and decide what 
it's going to be aftenwards. 
For example, if you created what 
you decided was to be a clickable 
button, then later decided you'd 
rather it was a text input field, it 
would he a matter of a couple 
of menu choices to enact the 
change. If you like the 
colour, font, and panel 
type used for the original 
button, the change 
wouid be even easier, 
and if you want 
to change the 
object's size, all 
ycrtj need do is 
drag it out to 
its new dimen- 
sion. 

In CanDo, 
you'd have to 
delete the but- 
ton, then cre- 
ate a test input

Not so easy 

Tine downside is that the program isn't 
as easy to US* as Can Do,, To begin a 
iession, quite a bit of manual work li 
required, and If it remains unchanged 
and li anywhere near as badly designed 
as the manual w? redeved, tfiis will be 
a major headache. 

Foundation doein''t carry the ob|ect- 
oriented approach througti Its own 
structure, unlike CanDo, which won't 
do anything wlth04Jt first being told its 
eventual objective. For Instance, If you 
were halfway through a session and 
you suddenly realised you'd lik« to puc 
In a scrolling te;(t window with a but- 
ton-launched fil^ requester, you'd be 
consigned, as t was, to searching 
through tfie manuai In search of the 
f AST-lalk commindi to enable the new 
object, 

There's no "how to do soch-and- 
such' structure to the manual, and no 
equivalent in the program. CanDo's 
slow panels come into their oWO in this 
respect as they contain all the options 
you need for each object. Foundation'! 
Structure, Uiough more streamlined.

can leave you guessing for long periods 
of tiriw. 

The Inclusion oT a decent user's 
guide would see most of theie prob- 
lems ioked, and with the feedback 
Impulse should be getting from early 
users, there's no excuse for not produc- 
ing one- There Is extensive online help 
In the shape of stacks containing 
detailed information on the program's 
various stfiptlng comma rids, hut these 
are little more than extensions ol the 
manuai. 

Perhaps the best feature In the help 
stack is the option to copy out of it any 
example script you think will be useful. 
If, thereto^ie, you'rt stuck on the anima- 
tion commands, you can load up the 
help stack, jump to the command 
^^ihose syntax or usage you're having 
difficulties with, then cut and paste the 
example you find into your own script. 

This isn't a substitute for a "how to

do" guide, but it comes in handy when 
you know which command you want 
but not how to use it, 

The FA5T-talk language, apart from 
its corrvpreherisive list of commands for 
the usual programming needs, has a 
number of commands to eriahle control 
of a CDTV dlit, making Foundation the 
first SAP to generate applications for 
Commodore's laser nwchine. For exam- 
ple, to play a certain number of audio 
tracks on a CDTV disCj the Foundation 
user need only send the command: 
tD.PlAMRJlCli;: l,i 

10 tell the CDTV to p»ay tracks three to 

SiK, 

If you rrted tio find out exactfjf what a 
disc contains, the command CD.VTOC 
will netum a multi-line file containing the 
disc's track information in standard MSF 
(mlnute-second'frame) notation. Using 
this Information, the user coutd then 
build a complete program of what to 
pby and wtten. 

This sort of support: Is not restricted 
solely to the CDTV, however, as 
Foundation is also capable of driving 
Laserdisc players and controlling other 
peripherals via th^e parallel and serial 
ports, not to mention its AFlexx port. The 
CO-PLftY.TIWCK command, for instance, 
has a brother In CD.PLAY.MSF, which 
uses CD'DA/CD-ROM standard MSF 
notation capable of controliing any com- 
patible CD device. 

Easy recorder 

Foundation's macro recording functiofl 
can only be described as e;K4iellent- 
Etather than opt juit for the AFlexx 
macros utilised in CanDo, Foundation 
has ttie ability to record a ma<ro in real 
time. All the user has to do is press f9 
to start recording, cany out whatever 
sequence of actions he or sfi>e wants in 
a macro, then turn off the recorder by 
pressing F9 again. 

In this way it is simplicity itself to 
automate the production of buttons, 
screens, or just about any object y&u 
please inside the memory limits of your 
System. When recording is over, you 
save the macro under a sensible name, 
such ai "Buttonfvtacro" and it is avail- 
able at any lime tsy pressing FIO to 
bring up a list of user-defined macros, 

HyperText 

Hypertext Is system wfiefeby individual 
words in a document can be treated as 
'active*, suth that clicking on them 
produces a second text parvel with 
more information on your choice of 
subject- Foundation's implementation 
of HyperText, which CanDo doesn't 
support, is a very powerful tool once 
mastered. 

An object containing text can have 
its own HyperText script attached to 
any word set to the HyperText Identi- 
fier. The identlFier is either bold, plain, 
underlined. Italicised, or text of a user- 



selectable colour. In other words, if a 
text box has a line of text about local 
industries, each of which is printed in 
bold text, the viewer can click on one 
of the industries, say f Ottery manufac- 
ture for Stoke-on-Trent, and the 
HyperText script will detect the click 
and flick to a screen containing infor- 
mation on the potteries. 

The potefltial for the HyperText sys- 
tem i'S pretty much iimitiess, as 
HyperText-identified words can be spat- 
tered around all through a presentatiDn 
piece and as many frames as your sys- 
tem will handie tagged onto them. In 
addition, any action you can call from a 
FAiT-taik script can be called from a 
HyperText script because foundation's 
HyperTeJtt implementation supports 
every feature of the program. 

It would be quite possible to pro- 
duce an entire program or presentation 
from HyperText panels without bother- 
ing with buttons or menus. In some sit- 
uations, such an interactive 
encyclopaedia, it is easily the most 
appropriate way to go about building 
your application. Its inclusion Is a major 
plus point in Foundation's favour, and 
sets it aside as the best choice for the 
s£ious presentation designer. 

Conclusion 

Foundatiort isn't as user-friendly as 

CanDo, but it i^s quicker in operation 
and in some ways more powerful. For 
certain applications, those which would 
benefit most from HyperText, It is in 
effect far superior. Home users who 
want to produce their own programs 
might baulk at the dire manual and the 
program's less formalised approach, 
and for tiiose users, CanDo is a better 
option. 

For business users, however, and 
deveiopers looking for a Hyperfi^edia 
prototyping tool, Foundation is the 
answer to many "what if,,," dreams. As 
it completely embraces HyperText, and 
has the pjotential to drive many of the 
CD-based systems beconting more and 
more prevalent in the multimedia mar- 
ket, it is sure to find a ftiche for itself In 
what is still a decidedly 
under-developed market.

hii month we pnatjdly announce a new flood of similar pictures. Gone are the days of endlesi 
digitised RoboCopi, now we're being imundaled with iikenesses of that fjn loving An itrian, Amiie 

_ Schwarzenegger in Tertninatof 2. Mind you, they're actually pretty good. Talte, for example, Itw 
rather groovy T2 rendition from Steven bne. Not bad, -eh? It's not even copied from the film. Cripes. 

TTiis montti's obligatory my tr*ced image is a cut above the osual teapots and splief«. Entitled simpJy 
"Pencir, it's an amhitioiii effort that certainly pays off. We've got M eall ol Leicester to thank for that 
one. So- altogether now^ thanks "M". 

He's dead. He'i fat. He'i back! Yes, "Elvis.'", the Kirtg of Rock 'n' Roll, hits the Gallery this month in pke- 
lated form from A Stanton of Eilesmefe Port "No ray tiiacing or digitiiing" w^ are told. Cood for you. It's 
nice to iee some originality creeping back in to computer art. 

Hide the vicar! It's that queen of s^uciress, "Madonna"! Ttiis extremely fnjity - but veiy well drawn 
picture comei courtesy of Mark Piibearn, as does "Star Patrol"- Both pictures make great use of DPainfi 
high res graphics, Willi plenty of attention to detail. 

Fof his top quality hand drawn wwk he's earned himself a copy of DPaint IV hot off the press^ and i 
framed copy of hi$ Madonna picture to show oft with. 

Remember, hard drawn pictures are much mOrt 1ike>y to win than scanning or digitising, JO, lets see 
some originality htr^i

solutions 



grjmmen and i Itsink if s worth mention- 
ing onfe again that some basic under- 
s.tandlng of C is necesiaJj' in order to cope 
with the Amiga's documefllstion - this 
applies even if you intend worldng mainly 
in assembler. 

There's another reason wtiy C gets a 
mention this month. In many areas - set- 
ting up Intuition screens, windows and 
menui for Instance - there it little to be 
gained by working in assembler and 
many pcDgrammers will do all tJiis initiali- 
iallon stulf in C and then patch in the 
assembler fode where it really nvakes a 
difference (assembler scroll routines and 
ihe like). 

Save money 

The reason I'm tdlin<| you this is to ta« 
you morejf because if you accept that 
HXTse understanding off C is not going to 
go amiss, Mid if you follow this path to its 
logical conclusion, then the chances are 
jfou will get a C compiler, whettwr It be a 
commercial version or a public domain 
sityie offering. 

Wtiac has this got to do 
witti assembler? It's simply 
that all C compiler 
packages p«wide their 
own assembler program. 
in other words you will only 
ever need tn buy an assemblv It you are 
1 00 per cent certain tiiat you are never 



do ^^^B 



going to get Invoked with CI As far as 

specifics are cortemsd there are quite a 
few assemblen floating around and I've 
limited my list to those that are reason- 
ably wed known. 

What does ne«d to be pointed otit is 
that when you buy a commercial assem- 
Wer, like DevPac, you wiH get fte official 
CcnTifTiodore-Amlga Iheader/lndude files. 
When you travel down the public 
domain/anything-ware trail you won't, so 
at some stage yOtJ wllJ need to buy the 
appnjpflate files from Commodore. 

Anyway, enough of these rambllngs - 
here are some of the prodiicts that you 
sbould know about.. 

HISoft DevPK; I've used DevPac fof a 

number of years and I must admit I do like 
IL The edityassembie/llnk facilities are easy 
to uSBj fast, and reasonably well inte- 
graled into the Amiga's WIMP environ- 
ment. DevPac hat a large, and suitably 
content, user base and ttie product has 
been v*dl suppcrted cvef the years. 
K-Seka AisemWer: Another package that 
has beefi around for quite a while. It is 
vvell bought at and has built up quite a 
substantial user base. 

Lattlce/SAS C; I'm not going to lay too 
mueh ab«ut this C compiler package 
tscause I gave a brief outfirie last month.. 
It comes complete with an excellent 
maao assembfer program. Wtiafs more, 
the Laltice/SAS CodeProbe Symbolic 



#■ 



debugger - wtiich has to be seen 
to be believed - provides support 
for boBi the C and the assembly 
language programmer. 
Manx Altec Cl Another commef- 
Oil C compiler package whic^ provides a 
good assembler, 

A16SK: TMs public domain sscfnUer was 
written by Charlie Clbbs and is based on 
Brian Anderson's 6fiOOO cnoss assembler 
[published in Dr Dobb's ioumal in 1 936). 
A6SK is an excellent piece of soiftware 
which is in fact provided as an integral 
part rf most Amiga public domain-type C 
compSer systierm. 

ACC: Amiganuts United supply this 
assembler environment. It's based on the 
public domain A6BK assembler and Blink 
linker, t?ut it also offers an editor, and pro- 
vides a number oif Include files and eiUm- 
ples. In buying this disk you'll fpet falfwr 
more help documentation-wiie dian you 
would do if you jusl picked up the AfifiK 
and Blink programs sepratety. 

Tlie benefits 

At Uws point you might be expecting lists 
of benchmark timings for various routines 
with notes to the effect that these shtjw... 
compiler X is the best for Bask, compiler Y 
wMl produce the best C code and so on. 
The fACt is, as I've mentioned before, that 
iny benchmark will target a wy specilfc 
area of the compilers performance. Trying 



to obtain a "generally use^il* value 
by averaging haW a dozen bench- 
mart! routines is nligh^<n irrtpossible 
and the result is dwt many such com- 
parisons tend to give narrow, and 
invairlably misguided, views. 

More to the point, a great mar*y 
potentially important benchmafk traits - 
tuch as math function ejssoition tine and 
graphics redrawing operations - are, on 
the Amiga, done using Standard Amiga 
Sbrarjes and Amiga Specific hardware calls 
(moving Images with blitter calb etc) so in 
practice tfie main "execution time cost" 
comes from the system routines and not 
the ccflipller generated code anyway! 

bprovements 

It is howevef certainly useful to illustrate 
the type* of performance improvements 
that can be obtained as you move from 
Basit interpreters to Basic and C qomptlefs 
and 6S000 assembly language, so some 
speed details are going to be given. 
Equally importint however Is an under- 
standing of of why some languages are 
"faster than others so I'm also going to 
spend some time explaining wtiy tfvis is 
the cue. 

With an assembler tlie final code, at 
the end 0* the day, will be directly reJabed 
to the Instructions you've written. Any 
speed/pertormance differences between 
the code generated by different assem- 






s

blera will be minimal and due to aisem- 
blef-sp«cific items that may have beer 

added or to the translated code, for 
irtstanct diffsrerces in the startup c[>de 
which ii tagged wi by the linlter. 

Vou may, intidentiKy, see adverts 
which claim that asienbier X un gener- 
ate code twice as fast as assembler Y. 
Suie, this speed is (jselui but to my mimi 
the actual speed of the transialiar process 

- the time taken for Ihe asseiTiWer to actu- 
ally convert an assemljly language pro- 
gram irto rurable Instrjctions - is no 
longef a factor tyf any great importance. 
With the memoiy avaiiabSe on the Aniiga 
the assembiy/linliing process can usually 
be done completely in RAM m assembly 
Hraes are easy to keep short, 

in general the same applies to ^igh- 
level iinguage ccmipiiers but, since the 
convefsion of i htgh-Jevei lan^uJ^ is i 
much more cempliated pr&cess, ccunpile 
limei are conespondingty longer. Even so, 
they are rarely more than a few rTiinutSi 
vrfien Etie compiJatiofl proceeds in RAM. 

Creation 

As far as code creation goes howev^j (he 
sitjation with Basic ird C compilers, is 
talher drffefenl. Even with iderttical swjrce 
code the final rtjnable code produced by 
the various compilefs can vary greatly. 
Ttiii may seem strange, so it is worth look- 
ing at l}ie underlying reaisons.. A compiler 

- and an interpreter come to that - will 
look at your progfam and try tn generate 
some suitable kiw-leviej instructions. 

S^)«ed, or Itw lack d it, in the final pm- 
gram is due to one thmg - tfw efficiency 
of the resulting code. Tfiere ii a common 
misconception here that needs clearing 
up - compilein are i^rely either "elliuenir 
or "ineffidenc", The tfulh of the matter is 
that they usual^ tend to be a bit of both. 

One particular compiler may, for 
instance, be able to proniiice very efficient 
fragments for structured loops but may 
faJI ctowri by producing inefficient switch 
structure code uvtien dealing with laige 
numtiefs of switch cases, 

Compilers can also alter sjofTte of the 
fundamental ctiaracCeristio of the code 
that y04j write. You migfit write a loop like 
this; 

f«r iUti Mi! i*+3 
( 

} 

but the comfHiier, may recognise Itiat the 
b==:b+c expression does not need to be 
inotde the loop ard so it might generate 
code correspondirkg tor 

f»r m-D; IfID; Uti 
( 

} 

Another compiler might tw less impressiwe 
in the above area but it might howEvet be 
able to produce cleverly optimis*d case 

code- As 3 specific example the 
Lattice/SAS C compiier system includes an

optFTiiser that can eliminate unused vari- 
ables, move invariinl loop calculations 

outside of the loop, reanfange flow control 
schemes and even re-o*der the operations 
you've written. Sozobon C incidentally • 
and its associated variants ZC, NorthC 
and so on - provides little or no help in 
tfnesesreat 

C compilers Can ilso choose, or be 
directed by the user, to store data in loca- 
tions whicti can be rapidly accessed [pri- 
marily processor registers}. Here are two C 
examples which use a global and a rois- 
ter variable respectivHy to count down 
from one million to iero. Using the 
default compiler options with Lattice/SAS 
(without the optimiser) the resulting code 
for the first routine - running on an 
Amiga 200O - took 1.2 seconds to exe- 
cute. The second register version on the 
same machine needed |ust six second:s!

) 

How does this compere with alternative 

offenings? Firsliy let's get things into per- 
spective. Interpreted Microsoft Basic 
needed four minutes for a simple loop like 
this. 

Ttie GFA BiSK interpreter cut the time 
o( an identical loop to 40 seconds, and a 
default compilation reduced that to 
around 1 3 seconds. 

As far a speed of arithmeticymatfis 
operations are ccncerne4 much depends 
on the types of objects being de^lt with. 
Tibie 1 shows som« GFA loop corrected 
speed comparison figures obtained with 
Cf A Basic using a loop tJiat pert omned the 
addiition of two similar objects 50O0 
dmes. 

Cm not going to qulbbl'« about GFA 
timings because I d^n't check all of them. 
What is usehjl however is Uhe relative rela- 
tionships between the interpreted and 
compiled versions, betause ft iiows that 
witliout any additicmal coding effort the 
compiler can make your Basic code mn 
significantly faster (of course similar gains 



are to had with the Hisdt and other Basic 
compilers)- In shcMt ttten a Basic compiler 
will, in many cases, make signific*ot dilter' 
ences to the speed with which Basic pro- 
grams wMI mn. 

In general however you will never - 
eiicept in the case of a few deliberately 
engineered examples - approach the 
speed that can be achieved by usin^ C as 
Uie language, 

iBack to C fof a moment and to those 
Uttice/SAS timir>gs for the loops men- 
tioned eadier. Using KlkR style equrvaknt 
prtitfams MorthC gave figures t>f 12 sec- 
onds for the gtotjal variabli veraiDn and 
seven seconds for the register variable 
form - by no means a bad perforrrtarKe! 

Benefits 

Finally we get to Itw benefits of assembler 
programming. Have a look at the code 

wtiich (he NorthC compiler generated for 
the register variable version od' the count- 
ing loop shown earlietr:

Ttie benefit? This reasonably trivial alter- 
ation to the NorthC generated aisembler 
code reduced ttie ifun-iame to under four 
seconds! 

Last words 

Over the last three months I've men- 
tioned a number ai compiler and assem- 
bler packages discussing some points 
which I hope have betfi o* interest- At die 
end of the day the bottom line is really 
that all compilers, inespective of Hie lan- 
guage they are working with, have to 
make compromises so their generated 
code will rarely be perfect. A program 
written in C however will invariably out- 
strip a similar program written in com- 
piled Gasic by a considerable ntargih. 

Despite C's impressive run-time perfor- 
mance it is doubtful wfiether a C progiann 
has ever been written whose performance 
could not be improved in terms of the 
final instnictiDns created by the compiler. 
TTiis however is the price to be paid for 
using a high-level language, 

6&K assembier, once mastered, will 
allow you to vnlte extremely efficient or 
extremely compact programs. Such pro- 
grams will unfortunately always take far 
longer to develop than their high-ievrt 
counterparts but thdt is the price pakf For 
t^ng the low4evel path, 

Pe^e tfie potertial pitfalls, assembly 
language programming appears to be as 
populj^r as ever ^nd mo^t programmers 
eventually decide to learn something 
about it, even if rnost of their coding is 
done using high-level languages. Vou can 
of course mix Basic and C code With 
atsemblei' patches and get the best of 
both worlds - altho^jgh that is a story for 
another tjmel

Instantaneous filtering and editing

A refined reputation 

Pat Winstaniey finds out why upgrades for Pretext and Prodata are so eagerly awaited 



■■: ■■j.n !„. jj>. V 



Pretext Version 5.5 



Wordpfocessors (thai ij, 
fancy typewriters) come 
in al) shapes ^nd si2«i, 
From the humble Ed and Motepad on 
the Workbench disk to migfity DTP 
warTii;>r& there are pn>9rams to suit any 
need. 

Budding writers must evaluate theJr 
needs befof e choosing a program sinoe 
the iournaiijt churnincj out several 
thousand words nlf plain text each day, 
the person who simply wants to write a 
few tetters, the club newsJctler editor 
and the ad agency writer who reeds to 
incorporate photographs and graphs 
require quite different too^s for their 
work. 

Unlike many fancier programi, 
Protest its One of the professkinal jour- 
nalist's main choices when plain text 
oTjnthing is the main requirement. And 
why? Because Protext, once mastered, 
iprofl^ides all the facililiei needed loi seri- 
ous writing ftxjm teci:i text. Due to its 
specification as a text cfurKher, Pmtext 
eschews the fancy fonb, Wysiwyg and 
graphic capabilities of its rivals with the 
bonus of sheer speed and ease of use as 
a trade oift. 

Thesaurus 

This new version has several enhance- 
ments. Perhaps tht most useful is a 
pop-up thesaurus with 43,000 main 
entries and 82?, 000 responses. For 
writers concerned with style the the- 
saurus can tie used in conjunction with 
the new word count facility which 
often not only simple word and charac- 
ter counts biJt also words per sentence 
and an analysis of individual word fre- 
quertcy either alphabetically or numeri- 
cally - useful for checking

gobbledegoot The spell checker inow 
boasts a couple of extra handy features. 
There is the facility to spot repeated 
words such as "the the" and also an 
automatic check on sentences to see 
that they begin with a capital letter. 

During the spell check either of these 
occurrences art flagged with the option 
to change them. To avoid intentional 
occurrences of these tieing thrown up, 
a spell ignore marker can be pJaced 
during typiing. 

Another handy feature, especialfy 
when fairty namow columns of text are 
right'jiustilied [like newspaper columns) 
is Automatic Hyphenation, With narrow 
columns, lots of white space occurs on 
lines containing only Wto or three long 
words, giving a raggedy appearance, 
While it is possible to hyphenate manu- 
ally to improve th^ layout of the texti 
pmbkms occur if changes are made to 
either the tewt itself or the column 
width. Any charvges and it must be per- 
formed again. 

Now Automatic Hyphenation can be 
tunned on so the process as contin'uous 
during editing. The amoiint of white

space allowed is set from either config- 
uration or stored commands, allowing 
control of the number of spaces 
allowed between words before hyphen- 
ation takes place. Be warned - a 
national newspaper recently had the 
word ■"arse-nal" hyphenated as shown 
at the end of several lines of tent which 
occasioned great hilarity on the letters 
page! 

There's nothing more annoylf>g than 
printing a multi-page document only to 
find the last line of a paragraph is at the 
top of a new page or the first at the 
bottom. These "widows and orphans" 
can now be eliminated by Prate^l, The 
page break b adjusted to p^ish the last 
two lines to a new page or a whole 
paragraph pushed to start a new page. 

Many writers don't bothet inderiting 
the first paragraph line but instead 
leave a Wanfi line between paragraphs. 
This can lead to a blank line being 
unnecessarily printed at the start of a 
new page- Now blank lines in this situa^ 



tion are suppressed automatically If 
required, A new fife conversion format 
has b&en added of interest to anyone 
wanting to pass fUes to Microsoft Word 
on the PC or Mac. Rich Text Format 
(HTF) files can be generated which 
retain stytes such as italic, centred text, 
bold, but enlarged text and Elite don't 
cany over - at least to tfw Mac, 

Dates 

Several miscellaneous features are now 
provided to speed things up. Date cal- 
culations now take both the |ulian and 
Cregorian calendars into account, a 
two digit year such as "91 " is assunned 
to be the twentieth century. Help 
opens a window which can be scrolled 
through, and clicking on keywords 
brings up further help, 

F2 now calls the file selector dire<tly 
and files can be viewed in different 
orders (date, size, disk order and so 
on). Files can also be hidden and 
batches marked for deleting or copy- 
ing. Files from Prodata can be read 
directly for mail-merging, otiviating the 
need: to export data. 

Overall the changes made are very 
much in the useful rather than cosmetic 
category and make Protect 
even mofe of a joy to us*.

adults And chlldreni with merttal and physical disabili- 
tffii were Invited to take part in activities laid on by the

The RAF Wattisham Computer Club was kindly 
given permlsslofi' to put on an interactive display for 
our guests, and as secretary erf the coniputer club, I 




-a 



was given the task of writing to various companies lo 
ask for assistance. I chose ter» public domain hoiiies, 
nine commercial- software companies and Afi\\go

Although I did not receive a reply from all the com- 
panies 1 wrote to, I would like to publicly thank the 
companies that helped us in our venture. The are: 
Goldstar Computers (EC) Ltd, faWiy PD, Amiganuti, 
Senlac software, California PD,, Activision, US Gold, 
Ocean and Ami^ Computing. I would also like to ^ve 
thanks to Bits and Bytes Of tpswich fof tjfve help they 
gave ui. 

Because of the excellent services of those men-

Starting with a tune 



i wish to include a MED vJ.OO tune in the startup 
sequence of my Workbench disk, but haven't a due 
fww it's done. Is it also possibfe to Include a picture 
from Photon Paint? 

Matthew Smith, Conibe 

To run a MED tune from your startup sequence. 
Include the following line at whatevef point you'd 
like the tune to start: 

tut >nH: <nil: NiipLi;ir ttuni] 

where {tune} Es the directory path and name of 
the tune you'd like to iplaty. The reason for all the 
ran >nll; business is that H you launch a program 
from CU, you h»ve to make sure it "detaches" 
itself from the CLt and runs on its own. 

If you didn't uie the command Run >nl\: <n\\- 
your startup sequence would stop dead at the 



Medplayer line. Be warned, how- %^f.tti^ 

ever, thai Medplayer when launched 

entirely into the badcgr^iund is unstoppable. Your 

best bet would be to run it fTom a CLI once the 

disk has loaded, as you cDuid then stop it by hoid- 

IngdownCtH-C. 

Photon Paint picdes.^ or any other IFF fof that 
matter, can be displayed using a variety of PD 
viewer programs, among which the best are viibm 
and PPShow. Find one of these on a PD disk, then 
include the line; 

Vitta (gr mhtHl tirrJ 

in youf startup sequence, where (IFF) Is the name 
and path of the picture to be displayed- You will 
have to dick a mouse button or press the spacebar 
to carry on once a picture Is displayed In this way. 



Mono sounds f"'\_ 

Can you help with a Sampler ^. - ACllS'g ^ 

problem? I have l«en using a Ihe %.j, ^^.i*^ 

Sound Master sampler for a few 
weeks and I'm having problems with marjy of Itw 
PO samples I've bought on compilation disks. 
Loads of them seem to play from only one speaker 
on m;^ CMaB33 monitor, even though the sampler 
is full stereo. 

is there someth ingi wrong with my sampler, or is 
it the Audio Master 3 software? 

M Fitt, Colchester 

Jhn problem seems to be with your samples. A 
great many samples taken for use in games or 
MEO tunes, and which appear on PD sample col- 
iecUons, are digitised In mono to save memory. 
When you lead these into AM3, you should be 
given a choice of whether or not to convert 
them to stereo. 

Wherj the requester pops up, click on '"Ves". 
The result won't be ai good as if the sample had 
been originally intended u a stereo sample, but 
you can then at least save It out as stereo to 
play through both speakers.

computer we have at horrte, 

Patrkla Earle, Northampton 

Education Is at last being taken seriously on the 
Amiga thanks to Commodore's "First Steps'^ Initia- 
tive. Take a look at 'Henrietta's Book of 5p«(ls" 
from Scetiander on D4l -157 1659 

Alternatively, you can run the software your doc- 
tor recon^mendi by means of Cenisoft's BBC

PD plea 



Ai a relative newcomer to the Amiga, 1= was very inter- 
ested to read your article on PD software in the )une 
issue of your excellent magazine, 

I have since bought several disks from the advertis- 
ers in your magazine and found them all interesting 
and certainly good vslue for money. 

I hav^ been told about some PD disks by MIkon 
Hakker which are supposed to be CKcellent, I have 
scoured the ads but have been unable to find any ref- 
erence to this ^un:e. I wonder if you could point me 
in the right directton?

Memory for words 



T74 



I quite recently treated myself to an Amiga 500 and 
expanded it to 1 Mb straight av^y. I could then play 
all the 1Mb games and I w^ pleased I had bought it 
Now, however, I find myjelf in- a d item ma. 

While using DPaint III and Disney's Animation 
Studio, I don't have enough memory for the more 
advartced features, t was wondering if, because I don't 
have the four chip expansjon and therefore can't Fit 
one of those little megaboards, could I swap some or 
all of the 16 small capacity chips for some larger 
chips? Is this possitile, and where can I buy the chips? 

My second problem Is that I haive done some work 
In randW&rds 2 and wanted to import it into ProPage 
vl.1. I tried this with ali of the text formats on 
ProPage's list, but It itlll doesn't recognise the files. 
How can I make it understand, or should I just buy 
Ihe copy of -Pen Pal 1 was bokrng at the other day? 

Matthew, W. MEdlands 

Tiy Siivtng your KindWords documents as AscH 
files. A nofmal KindWords document uses a file 



format supported only by Dtglta'i 'Vf jt*^ 

Wordwofth wordprocessor, but 

ProPage should have no problem with an Aicli ftle. 

As for buying PenPal, don't bother. You've 
alreacly got ProPage, SO there's no point In buying 
a wondproceuor whose chief virtues are its DTP- 
like features. You'd be better off with Wordworth, 
as you could then load up ail your old KlndWordJ 
files using Wofdworth'f load format options. 

'Whatever you do, ditch KindWords. It's enough 
to drive a saint to drink. When I had a copy, I was 
so frustrated with it I r«softed to my old Spectrum 
arKJ a copy of Tasword. 

Your memory expansion should b« left as It Is. 
Dofi't try to just swap your 25fiK drams for 1Mb 
dilps - It won't work. If you need more meoiory, 
the best course of action would be to sell the old 
board and buy a 1.5Mb trapdoor bo^rd or a tnit- 
on expansion tius box. As It happens, we're doing 
a mini round-up of just such equipment in thfs 
Issue. 



PD print ^^^x^ 

Please help - l have a number of C.' ^CflS'g -^ 



'^'f'e Ja^"" 



PD game disks and wish to put 

tiw Iritfuctlons Into print. However, 

I keep getting "Can't open printer.devlde" when I try 

to use PPMore's "Print File" option,. 

As I am new to computing, could you please make 
the reply esjy to un^ferstand. 

V S MillSy Bloscwkh 

The probltm with the disks you refer to is that 
tftey fiave been compiled without the Worihench 
files needed to print documents, namely the 
prlnter,devic« and paraiieLdevice' filei from the 
OEVS directory, and a printer driver In the 
DEVS/Printers draiwer. 

To print yoiir documents with the least hassle, 
delete some stuff from a topy of your Workbench 
disk - the utilities directory ts a good place to 
start - then copy th€ documents across by drag- 
ging their icons to the new disk. 

Tile Worinbench disk will now have the doc flies 
and the proper printing files, but will be iacldng 
two important flies - PPmcre itself and 
PowerPacker. library. To copy these to your 
Workbench disic, use the two following CU com- 
mands: 

iWI PMiitit/rPiore tf Vgrkbenclic^ 

im P(-l1(l[:Ubi^P«Htrfnktr,Librify 14 VDrkhervCh: M^t/ 

wttere "PD-Dlsk" is the name of th« disk you're 
trying to copy tfw docs from 

An alternathre to this procedure would be to 
buy PowerPaclcer Professional from Softville PD 
(0705 266S09) and de-crunch the doc files. As 
they would then be standard Ascii text flies, you 
could priint them using a wordprocessor or by 
using the command 
TfPI {d»cf1lt} T« PHT: 

where {docflle) is the name and poth.of the file to 
be output 

you know which library gels in touch first and pass 
on the details. 

Game over? 

I am hoping that you or one o^ your readers may b« 

able to heip me with a problem that I have m trying to 
locate i game that I like and want to purchasie, I detest 
pirate copies which seem to be the only available 
sourees- 

The game is question is Galaxy 89 from Kingsoft 
artd It is t clone of Calaxian. Although tfie game is no 
longer available in Australia, I'm hoping that it is avail- 
aisle in Europe still as it was written over there.

For ^Dnger than most of ui 
wouSd care to remember 
there's beer onlj On.* Teat 
en Dice if you're urious about Amiga 
^iiinpling. AudinMaiSter was arvd still li 
Ihe sjistem to beat and at .i re^-ult its 
cofTipetitora have be*n left desperately 
iryi:ig to emulate Ihe master . 

Up jrtil flow none of them have 
realty cynie cloie, but j1 last 
AudioMaiter hal be^en tjettered by 
what 'A a shamtias wanna- be emtill&j 
Audiliofi 4. It has rot or>ly *rtiuUte<l the 
originai but has ika managed to kncor- 
porate a wholie range of new and vefy 
impresiiw impfovementi. 

Ttie interface 

Anyone who's ustd AudioMailer will 
feel nght at home with Audrtiori 4 as It 
opers with an almott iderttiul fronl 
end. It's only wrfien you open a fiew pull 



dfliwni that tfie real differenfe starti to 

ihow. Many of tl^ the t46e<ii di:sptay 
funr.tioiH are detinabie from the pull 
do*v*Ts or hot keys. As a result a huge 
array of cornbinatlori are jelectablE 
and of course Saw-able. 

These nff/ofi defaults cover the fol- 
lowing cam mands- OK recjuflsters. Low- 
pass filter, line position. Oscilloscope, 
Level dfsf^ and Cursor control, 

The optional OK requester is aimed 
primarily at expert users who soon 
become totally sicl( with the necessity 
to confirm every request 

The Jo-pasi filter simply loeb a pre- 
defined low level signal filter on to both 
tfie sampjiei in memory and indeed 
those which are played from disic. 

The line position iimply displays the 
present time position within the sample 
as it plays. This can beesienliai if jfOii'ne 
looidng for a spedfic point within larger 
samples. The oscilloscope is a more 



obvious feature as it dispi^s the Himple 
in real lime in both mono and stereo 
modes. 

Just lil(e the Oicjlloscope, the level 
^jjplay shqws the sample in real time 
Lsing tape declt style LED meters which 
show the sample's volume as pulses. 
This is ideal if you're trying to dV4td 
clipping and has the added bonus of 
being a qood deal smaller thail the 
DscillDSCDpe, if perhaps a little less accu- 
rate. 

The final option is to remove of dsr 
pSay the eursoi' which ihows your pre- 
sent cunor position within the sample 
window. Why you'd want to is another 
question but the option is there \i you 
reed it. 

Along with these designer screen 
controls comes the usual array of 
AudioMaster functions such as hi-fi 
play, stereo to mono, icre«n colours 
and of course a number of sampler 
options which surprise; surprise include 
both of the Perfect Sound samplers, 
Aegis*^. Sound Master and an option to 
use unlisted genefit samplers. 

The rather limited choice is perhaps 
the software's only real f si ling when 
compared with AudioMaster, but hav- 
ing said that the actual sample qualit)' 
appears to be identical when tested 
with Soundlwlaster and the generic 
option does seem to do a good Job 
with unlisted units. 

The remaining options allow you to 
listen whilst sampling and also close the 






-Passing 

Audition 

s-s-sam 



Workbench screen in order to save 
some valiiable chip rnemory. 

The next pull down reveali the sam- 
ple adjuslnwrit controls which consist 
ol Smooth, Centralise, Maximise, Lift 
Bass and LiftTreWe. 

Mo&t of the above the probably 
don't need lengthy explanatiotis but a 
bnef rundown could be handy so here 
M^ 90. All of the above aA on ranged 
sample data which is selected by a sim- 
ple cliddng and dragging of the trusty 
rodent. 

Smooth and Maximise do exactly 
what they suggest, Sflfteniog and 
expanding the signal to the full whilst 
111 avoiding distorUon. Centralise sim^ 
ply moves the sample to the optimum 
position on the default frequency. Lift 
Bass and Uft Treble add a little sparkle 
or punch to the ii9nai^bj^ pre-defined 
amounts. M ■ 

All change 

After the selectable effects come the 
blanket ecJit commands wrtiich apply 
their powers to the entire signal 
v¥hether it be mono 01 stereo. The (irat 
and perhaps strangest of these is Invert. 
This command allows you to turn » 
sample on its «-ajiis Ihereisy turning a 
peai« into a depression. 

Apart fram maidng some very silly 
noises it can have a seriouj use. 
Occasionally inverting a sample may 
remove tikkt if, for example^ you're 
trying to join two pulse or sine-lite 
sounds together. This is done by flip- 
ping one sample in order to make a 
better and smoother join with the neitt. 

Reversing the sarnpile is iti fte^tt tal- 
ent and a must foe anyone who fancies 
a 70s progressive rock revival. The pro- 



Riding the range 




I 



* 



All of the editing commands on the following page deal 
with effects and their application, the next selection is where 
all the serious hack and Slash happens. 

All these connmands relate to the ranged areas within the 
Edit wirtdow. A ranged area is simply a marited section of 
the sample whkh is selected with a simple (lick and drag or 
allemativeiy from the Range All command on the main con- 
sole 

Once a r^nge is specified it can have all manner of edits 
applied varying from simple deletion to being saved direct 
to disk. Cutting, pasting, copying - the choice is endless. 

Four of the most interesting range commands are as fol- 
lows. Zero range will detete all data within thali range and 



replace it with a zero signal or silertce - a use^l trick if you 
want to clean up a little between sample events.. 

Next is the Overwrite option which copies the buffer 
sound into the range at any point within the Edit window 
erasing the previo<Ui data but without lengthening the entire 
sample . Cut to buffer does exactly as the name suggest and 
lifts a particular section and stores it safdy in the buffer or 
direct to disk. 

Insert adds the contents of the buffer at a set pojnt with- 
OiJt erasing the data either side of the insert. FinaHy there's 
the indispensable add woricspace which can be added in 
either or*, live, of ten second sections. An absolute must if 
you want to add effects like echo or delay.

I ■f^S'"' tTiWe bialant bit of marketing for 
I ithe Pierfect Souncj lampkr wiii(h \\M 
happefti to be from the sa.iie stable. 

Aft« the jdvertiiifjg comw tl»e seri- 
ous stuff, which starts with the tri-fof- 
mat Load liirKtion. This alJows you Co 
either load to the Edit window, Buffer, 
or alDernative^ son chip or fast mfffl- 
ory for samples which may have been 
left by your favourite software alter the 
last wann reboot. 

Predictably enough, Save is the next 
optJon and can store sampler from bhe 
either th« BuNer, Edit window or 
ranged afess within the wmdow. On

formal contitils which allow you save 
your creatior as Raw, Compressed or

The final standard Save command 
allows you to stwe the software conlig-

Soutidtrack^r and Med fans also 
ftave their fiay thanks t:o the opportu- 
riity of savmg in either Sor>i)t or IFF

One to five octaves. 

, The ncKt treat is the extellent play 
Ttle option which allows you to hear any 
file direct from disk without the need to 
load the sample into the software. A

Delete, Print and Qutt are Mi that 
remains and as you might expect

And finally... 

As you've noticed I'm impressed, and 

anyone who'i itito serious jamplSng

the Qfify serious choice tor Audiofvlaster

After hours of ardent twiddSing f can 
only think of one moan, the lack of an 
undo last edit command, which if avai^ 
able would add the only missing

Flange ii ^n old favounie of sampling software, but be 

warned it can be a blesiing or a nightmare if applied 
cardessly, A function that real^ benefits from Auditiar>'s 
option to tiy before you apply. 




Enters are almost an essential especially if you're workir^g 

with ratfier dodgy source sounds which may benefit Uwn 

the removal of the odd frequency or two. Four formats, are 

avaifable all of which car be tweaked with the aid cff the 

frequency slider.

Perhaps the most powerful attribute of the original 
AudioMaster ii \\i ability to sequence the playing of sam- 
ples themselves. With this talent entire songs can be sam- 
pled in ai various lections, joined and then played in 
sequer^ce wfien and as often as rei^uired - the product 
being a complete song from just a few iimple compo- 
nents. Not to be outdone. Audition has its very own 
sequencer which like most of the toftware is almost identi- 
cal to AudioMaster with the odd whistle and bell thrown 
in for good measujie. 

All the sequencing essentials are on hand with the usuaij 
array or marker selection, add and delete, and of course 
du-du -duplicate. Usually a section is selected with the 
mouse but more accuracy is possible by employing the 
optional markers. 

When all the edits are complete the sequence can be 
scrolled wfith the excellent sequence slider which automat- 
i£i.lly leaps from section to section as you stroll through 
your creation in search tor that elusive element that isn't 
quite nght. 

Once the dodgy edit is found it can be carii be 
e*tpanded or contracted using the Zero buttons which 
automatically search both the beginning and end of the 
section for the optimum point to make the edit. 



"^ Sampler control is an obvious essential for any sampling 
software and as a result Audition is well versed in all the 
essentials plus having the ability to mix incoming source 
with pre-sampled soun?^. Also, each channeil of the steneo 
signal can be sampled individually and mixed live, 

All edits can be applied to either the mono or stereo 
san^ples with each channel being edited independently If 
necessary. A definable sample trigger is also on hand plus 
the option to adjust input and start volumes to suit the 
idiosyncrasies of your sampler. The ever present monitor 
option is alio available along with the ability to record to 
disk and of course define the sample rate, which can go 
right up to the lofty heighti OJ 5S,00(} samples per second.

Anyone serious about sampling will soon find the option to 
retune samples an essential and here again Audition does well 
1^ offering the ability to retune over five octaves and of course 
to the exact note of you choice. A handy definable tuning tone 
has been added plus the abiH^ to adjust the left and right vol- 
umes independently. T

Well cormFcie 



Amiga modem cabling causes problefns. 
For reasofis b«it lirwwn to thernseh^s, 
thte Amiga hardwire designers decided 
to nii up the unused pirii of the ZS-way serial con- 
fvectof with non-slai>dard feature. 

Thus a genwit \iS'2l2C cable with all 3S lines 
connKted straight thmngh n^ay cause pnablefrtSj 
especially wiEb an A'iQW whiich hii five vo3t power 
lines in ill the wiong places, Voti can buy Amiga 
serial cables, but make very iure that the dealef 
krows what type of campuLer and modem you 
hove. 

If you know which end erf a soiderirg iron tci 
hold, building your own abk n extremely simple. 
Voii'll need a 25-wsy pJug, a 25-way socket, hoods 
for both, and aboul six feet tff shielded cable with 
at least 1 lines, As you an see fron the diagram, 
there's not s very complex wiring arrangement - 
all 1 Q connettiofli are made itraight throtigh. 

I built a cable identic^ to this fw my lint 30C 
baud manual modem, It's still gtving exquisite 
enor-lree service mining at sixty four times that 
speedj feeding a Miracorr> Courter OS, 

The squesky box 

Tbii ii the difficuft bit to make rKomfnendations 
about. Ther^ are so many drtferent modems, all 
able to speak the basJc Hayes command setr It's 
- the slight variations that ciuse the problems, so 
read the msnual. If yOU bought the modem sec- 
ond-hand without a manual, be^, bocrwv or steat 
one. If you got no manual, jnd no demonstration 
of the modem working, you didn't get a bacgair*, 
no matter What price ymi paid. 

If yini have your setup configured weili enough 
to get ar "OK" returned from entering "AT at the 
temiinal, yo\i should be abfe to make a connectiofi 
to a BBi. Due to the hw-rvders of standaTdisationr i 
surprising amount of software and hardware con- 
figurations will worit straight out of the box. Only 
minor tweaks will be required, and the manual of

your comms software should tell you htw to get 
most popular modems running well. 

The telephone line f onns the largest part of the 
link, and you have very little control over it. If you 
share a modem line with other phone ejitensions, 
make sure that you do not have too many devices 
plugged in. 

The total REN of aJl the equipment connected

remote system, but fail to connect or 
get the Carrier dropped (a CON- 
NtCT message, then immediately 
HO CARRIER) suspect the compati- 
bility of the two modems, If no 
CONNECT message is issued, you 
might be trying a speed that the 
remote modem doesn't support 

If s connection is made, then 
dropped, maybe one of the 
modems is getting confused by error 
(nrrecting protocols. I had a modem 
which eithibiced both tt>eie prob- 
lems, and it c*used no end of hearteehe- 

The comms software you use is pretty irrelevant 
to making connections. Any software, correctly set 
up, will give you an equaHy g«id chance of con- 
nedjon. Since all the signal detection if biuilt into 
the modem, the best terminal software can only 
echo badt data from the modem, and send data in 
accordance to the user's wishes. 

If your modem supports RTS/CTS (Request/ 
Clear to Send) or hardware handshaking, use it. 
Handshaking allows one side of a connection to 
tell the other side to Stop transmission to allow the 
other ej>d to catch up. It is esswtial for any con- 
nectJon where the line speed is less than the com- 
puter to modem speed, as would happen with 
MMP Level 5 or v42bts data compfessJon. 

Sflme packages luch as NComm (up to vl .32} 
require RTS/CTS to be set from Preferences. The 
current vefsion of NComm [1 .921) does not suffer 
from this reistrklion, and has all the bugs from 
1.92 clean&d up. This update will be at every 
worthwhile bulletin boad by the time yoti read 
this. 

One last hint before I 50; read all the manuals 
completely through before giving up. Yoc should 
glean enough information from them to make 
some kind of a connettioo to a bulletin board. 
Start asking around for answen there, and you wil 
soon be getting the fjest out of your equipment

Questio ns, pl^ 



m li it poisibie for me to mcofpoflile sewnd effects 
and musk into my video productions? 



I If you're not interested irt iyncronisirig sound 
and visksrt p^rfKttjf, (hen addirg rriLsic and sound 
effects to your video prodU'CtiOfiiS is vtry easy 
indeed. Al=l you need is art audio rrixer lilde the one 
sold by Omega Projects miS 762MS). 

Simply by connecting the indto output fnom 
your source wideo 10 the mister, you can then add 
in^ and dynamically cortrd the levels <yf up to three 
sound sources. Most aiKJio minets tiawe indepen- 
dent contiols for all the soond inputs plus a master 
coritrol for the miised signai. This mined iignal is 
then! fed into the b*ck of ywjf destiMtiofi video 
deck. 

For more professional uses, you'H need to ifiwest 
in a SMPTE Sme code generator and a video deck 
that accepts SMPTE time code, Designed specifi- 
tally tor mking vide* and audio, SMPTE allows 
yoLt to lock both video and audio sources together 
at single frame accuraq'. 

Most professional video and music products do 
support Sf(<fTE {Muiic-X and ShowMaker, for 
ejsampte), i>ut SMPTE has one major disadvantage 
- it' J hkmmin' eKpensive! The time code gerera- 
tors therflieivei aren't that expensive, but a 
SMPTt-compatible video deck rtrill set you b»ck 
severd thousand pounds. 

A better bet is to use a pfxjgram like fv1uiic-X to 
sequence together Midi-generated music and sam- 
pled eWecti and then set up a Music-X keymap to- 
trigger the musk atvd samptes m and when they 
are needed, Thii requires you to take full control 
over when the samples and muiic are triggered. 
Unfortunately; this can often result in timing prrjb- 
lemi. 



pl Is it poiiibk to Wf my Amiga to acluaHy 
moD^pufaf? thf video imagei themsekes? For ewm- 
ple, i'd like to be able to re-cotour certain sKU'ons of 
theKnen. 

13 Ves, it is possible but if s going to^ cost yOu a 
lot of nnori*)'- What yoo need is a piece Of equip- 
ment cailed a Video Effects Processor. Cun-ently 
there are very few VtP systems available for the 
Amiga, especially the ASOO. However, if yon can 
wait far the arrival of a PAL version of Newtek's 
Vdeo Toaster, then you'll have accew to pnibably 
one of the most capable video processor units 
available. Built in 10 the Video Toaster is a 
ChromaFX iysterm ttiat allows you to adiuit the 
bri9htness, contrast and colour of live video 
faotage. 

The Video Toaster's Chroma FK system allow 
you to cany out a wide range of video effects such 
as poiterisatjon, image inversion and colour 
vignette*. You can pnotess your video to look like 
old film with sepia tCNiing or high contrast black 
and ^Ite. 

Other efects include the ability to miK black 
and white and colouf images together and more 
subtle effecli such as dark sky filters, nuke, 
chrome, snow lights, snow Cycle and a tot more 
besides. What's more, the Video Toaster allows 
you to create your own video effects with an 



|ason Holborn answers some of the more commonly 
asked questions about desktop video on the Amiga

Ekt tho!* Hen <»t ihcKtfMarng ittditi ofiiKh 

almost JimitJess combination of built in and user- 
defined effects. 

If you can't quite stretch to the cost of a Video 
Toaiter {expect it to retaif for around £1 SOO in the 
UK), then a more cost effective way of achieving 
the same ends ii to use a video digitiser-based 
effects system like Elan Design's Invision Plus 
(expect a full review neat month!). 

This powe,rtiu1 effects system^ on a cafd allows 
you to cany out many of the effects offered by the 
'Victeo Toaster at a considerably lower price. Even 
better, unlike the Vide* Toastef, invision Plus is 
available now Irom MB Marl^eting (0763 636000), 
invisiDn won't allow yoii to minipylate the actual 
video signal, iioweve* - all it does is grab the sig- 
nal as an Amiga image and carry cut effects on it 

Even a fairly bssic colour video- digitiser can be 
used, although you'll have to create the effect* 
offline and then pull together the individual hames 
in something like DPaint to create an animation 
nie. Most video software does support time coded 
anirnallons (ShowMaker is. about the best), so 
jHZtually incorporating these animations ii, a fairly 
simple task. Unfortunateljc, like Inwiion, yorj don't 
get full video resoludon. 

tSM I own a gifikxM and two VH% video dedcf, but 
tlw qooHty J gH on the fmal videatapf it iftfemr to 
the quality ttiat f we Ofl ffly Am^ mofsftof. Vfboi 
am I dbirtt? wrcrig? 



Because of the nature of the analogue com- 
posite video signal, it's inevitable that you'll lose 
sorrkething in image quality. Unless you irrvest in » 
pair of decent SuperVHS decki and a SuperVHS 
genlock, there'i little you tan do to obtain tmly 
ptiofeiiional results. 

However, one thing that you can cto is to invest 
in a PAL, Encoder like the one sold by Third Coast 
Technologies (0257 472444), Selling lor just O 30, 
Third Coast's PAL Encoder nealSy does make a dif- 
ference. If you use a pair of decent video decki 
and first generation videotape, you can often get 
results almost identical to the image you see on 
your Amiga monitor. 

I use a PAL encoder ntyself and 1 must admit 
thai, having used it for over sis months now, 1 just 
couldn't live without it Try it for yourwlf - I'm sure 
yorj too will eventudly feel the same.

Absolutety. What you need i* a peice of equip- 
ment called a Chramakey. Up until quite recently, 
no Chromakeys were available for the Arraga, but 
several US manufacturen have since come up with 
the goods. One of the best ii the Video Blender 
from pfogresiive Peripherals and Software, This 
powedul device not only includes a Chramakey 
Option, but it also boasts full fading and mixlr^ 
controls, keyed picture-in-picture, a broadcast 
quality genlock, custom wipes and a lot more 
besides. 

Despite the fact that i PAL version has been 
Available for a few months now, it still hain't been 
released in this country. However, it is believed 
that Marcam Ltd - the people who marlsel the

its. powerful animartkin facilitiei and l\> perspect^'e

I uie DPaInt extensively for just this kind of 
thing. It's not perfect, however, for starters, 
DPaht is primarily a 2D paint package, so there's 
no way you can create extmded 3D tiiifcs. If you 
vvant to be able to create "true" 3D titles, then 
your best bet is to get your haftds on a package 
like Sculpt 3D or VideoScape 3D and create tt>e

Regisiere 



Margaret Stanger gets serious with registers 



There is not raom on \h\i page for a 
detaiJEd deicriipt^on of iW cuslora chip 
registeri and how they fufiction, bul I 
can show yoj how to get a simple Copper list to 
work. 

The various custam chip registers occujjy 512 
bytes. All registers are two bytes wide and on 
even addresses, The ime address ot the register 
area ii at lOFf 00^ the eftectivie address, of a regis- 
tet ii tDFFOOO * legistet addrtis. The external 
reference, XREF CUitOfn, will allow yoy to use the 
base address of the register area without any 
hard coding. 

To- use 3\i the register addresses without typ- 
ing them in, I use the staUm^nt; 

EHCLUDE •Mtntttimim.i- 

This file from the assembler headers gives all the 
register addresses as offsets fram the cjstom 
strjctjre. 

Most of (he registers are write only, those that 
can be read as well a wrilten usuially have two 
addnessei, one for reading from (ending in "R") 
and one for writing to (ending in "W"), A strobe 
register is like a trigger, if one ot these is 
accessed, a one time action can occur in the 
chip. 



The Copper 



The Copper, or co-proceisOF, can change the 

ccmtenb of some registers at certain screen pmi- 
lioni, The C*pper has a program called i Copper 
list that is stored in memiNy and ewcuted com- 
mand by command, at the same time as the 
fTi:ain proceisor. The Copper ean divide the 
screen into different regions with different colOiJt 
lists or different reso^uticms,. 

tJp to now we have done this bj defining a 
View and its Viewports, but Viewports consist 
mainly of sets of inilructions tor the Copper. 
Screeni and Windowj are easier to use than 
Graphics Prlmitr^es, but giwE you less f needom. In 
the same way setting uj) your own Copper lists is 
mofe difficult than using a ViewPort structure and 
losing a View, but allosAK more versatiiiity. 

For example, a Viewport has one CQloiJr list 
throughouitj bul a Copper list allows the list of 
colours to change with thie screen position, I have 
also seen Copper liits used to create a very 
impressive parallax sctqIH 

List building 

the Copper has only three dfflerent commands. 

1. The MOVE comrrand writes an immediate 
value into a custom chip register. This command 
always has a zero in bit of the first command 
word, because the register addresses are always 
ewen. 

2. The WAIT command waits tJntiJ the electron 



beam has reached a certain screen position, it is 
indicated by a one in bit of the first command 
word, and an ^ero iin bit of the second, If the 
electron beam has already passed the specified 
position, there is no waiting. 
3. Tine SKiP command skips the next command if 
the beam has already reachect a certain position, 
making cooditional branching possible. It is iden- 
tical to the Wait command except that bit of 
the second command word is set instead of clear. 
There iS' a bit in the interrupt registers for the 
Copper interrupt, 

This interrupt can teH the processor that a cer- 
tain scr^n position has been reached. The last 
command on a Copper list WATTs for an impossi- 
We beam potitisn, ending the Copper list pro- 
cessir>g until a. new list Is started. 

;Here Is a simple copper list to change the 
bacligitjund colour from black to dari blue after 
the first 16 lines:

Getting started 

The copper has its own OMA chanrtel, and takes 
precedence over the bJitter and 66000, If the 
COPEN bit (bit seven) in the DMACON register ii 
cleared, the copper does not execute art)' more 
commands. If the bit is set, the Copper starts its 
program execution at the address in its program 
counter. 

The DMA register bits can only be set or 
cleared If bit 1 5 Is set, all the Other set bits in in 
the data word are also to he set. If bit 1 S is clear 
all the set bits in the data word are to be cleared. 
Other bits in the [JfWA register used in the pro- 
gram are; 

BPLIN - bit B ■ bit pLiive DH - bit S 

BLTIH - hit 1 - bUtttr MH - tit i 

3PREH - bit S - spritf IHI - l^it S 

mm ' bit ? - m enaMt (gf biti tn B 

The Copper uses an intemal pnxiram counter to 

poiot to the current commarid. The C0P1 LC reg- 
isters contaiin the address of the copper list. The 
strobe C0PJMP1 register is used to trigger the 
Copper to start at this address.

Fof tihe Amiga to access the Copper Hit, the fist 



has to b« In chip metflory in the same way as 
rasters arvd sound wave data, for my program ta 
fun on an Amiga wrth extended memory, ( have 
to make sure that the data is in the right place. 
This is dontE by allocating chip memory for the 
copper list, and copying the data into this mem- 
ory. 

Do not disturb 

When a program Is accessing the registers 
directly, it is expected to take o'l^r the Amiga for 
the duration. I do not want the Amiga switching 
tasks during the this part of the program so I use 
the Eitec Library routine, Forbid(), before I start 
writing to the registers. Alter that part of the pro- 
gram ii over I use the Exec Library routine, 
PemitO, to pennit the Amiga to start multi-task- 
ing again. 



Tidvifig up 



In earlier programs the old view address was 
saved, and loaded again when the program 
ended, This time nwst of tihe view was left alone, 
but with the sprites and bitplanes disabied, The 
qld display can be replacet^ by enabling the 
Sprites arid bitplanes, and putting the old Coppef 
list in place. 

The old Coppef Eist address is stored in the 
member gb_capinil on the CfxBase striKture.

Blue Stripes again 

The file, copper, a, on the support disk is the one 
and onily source code file for the program, cop- 
per. I have not used the underscore option for 
assembly as I am not linking to a C source code 
tile this time. The program starti by opening the 
gtaphics library and allocates some chip memory. 
A Copper list that gradually changes the back- 
ground colour from Wack to light blue is copied 
into this chip memory. The copper OMA is dis- 
abled then enabled again after the new copper 
list b put in place and triggered. The display of 
tasteful horiitontal blue stripes remains on the 
screen until a joystick fire button is pressed. (IWy 
old faithful joyslkk routine, playsig, makes yet 
anothef appearance.) The old Copper list is 
brought back, the memory freed, and the pro- 
gram e,xits. 



COMING SOON... My next few Almantic 
pages will be devoted to sound production on 
the Amiga. The Machine Code page of the 
Almanac will be amalgamated with the Code 
Cliniic page in tiie mjgaane. The support disk 
will contain both C and Assembler source 
code, fully documented, as before.

MUSIC 



Octa MEDle 



Version 2 of Teijo Kinnunen's acclaimed OctaMed lias 
just been released, jason Holborn took it for a spin 



The itandard of Afnjg* PD ioftware ii 
eKceplionally high, but It may surpriM 
y<M 10 learn ttiat in certain cases, some 
Amiga PD ii actually better thjn fti comrrnrcial 
toudterparts. Take fof eKample Timm Martin's 
acclaimed SID utility. D^prie the l!act that 5I:D is 
a shareware product il 'i Hill by far the best 
dlr«l«y utility av^.ilsh(€, 

Thef« are PD music utililies which also fall into 
t*iis category. Most notable among these is T^ijo 
Kinnuneri's MED, a quEte ex,cetlent ^oumfTracker 
clodt which could teach many commercial pre- 
grams a thing of two, and which has quickly 
become the de facto itandard in AmJga music 
composition. Ychj'H llnd MED being used mtsti- 
sively by proEeisfonal programmers and muii- 
cians alilie for game soundtrack compositior, 
sample sequencing and a lot more. 

Commercial composer 

flealiiing there is money to be made from IVlED, 
Teijo set to work in m attempt to produce a 
comnoerci^l release of ttie program, Little more 
than a few monttti later, OctsMED was born. 
Combining the best featurei of MED with a few 
tricks of it) Qwn, OctaM€D sold like hot cakes. 
Now, a few morttlvi afv«r the leleas of the origi- 
nal, OctaMED version 2 is t>ere. Selling for pst 
£20, not only ii OctaMEO 2 the belt Amiga 
sound chip composer avallible, it's also the 
cheapest. 

for those of you who haven't had the goodi 
Toftune to mh OctaMED, it^s a powerful Sound 
TrackEf clone with one distinct advantage over 
the competition, instead ol being nestricted to 
the usiiai four channels of sound, OctaMED can 
plaj^ a maximum of eight charinels simultane- 
ously- In reality, the Amiga hardware only sup- 
ports four channels, but Teijo has got around this 
with a combination of some clever programming 
and ikfviouis thinking. 

Grid and bear it 

One tli« whole, eight channel sound works well, 
but there )s an inevitable degradation in sound 
quality. Octalyzer, the only other eight channiel 
Amiga sequ-encer, was particularly bad for this, 
but Teijo seems to have reduced the problem to 
a bare mirimuim within OclaMtD 2, allowing 
you to create eight channel compositions which 
sound aimost as good as four channel tunes, 
What loss in sound quality does appear is more 
than made up for by those extra four channels of 
sound. 

Like all Sound Tracker clones, OctaMED uses 
the now familiar giid-like editing system pio- 
neered by the original Sound Tracker, It's proba- 
bly the n^ost unmusical editing system you're 



likely to firvd within a music package, but it does 
the job. By simply entering values IriEo a vertical 
event list, you can make OctaMED trigger sam- 
ples at a predetermined time. In reality, it's a iittle 
like prg^ramming a drum machine, where each 
set of eight events represent! a bar. Obviously 
this depends heavily on the time signature of the 
piece, but you'll find yourself knocking out tunes 
lr» no time at all. 

Sounds complicated? Well, it isn't really, but 
things are made slightly worse by the fact that 
OttJiMED is pattern-based. Instead of being able 
to compose your tunes from beginning to end 
within a si'ngle set of events, you're forced to plan 
y04ir music into discrete patterns w*t,ich must be 
pulled together to form the final tune, Pattern- 
based compositlDn takes some getting used to 
but- if used correctiy - csn be ea.sier than the 
kind of linear sequencing you'll find Jn Midi 
sequerKers like Muiic-X, 

Score option 

One feature new to OctaMED 2 Is score editing, 
wtiich allows you to produce patiems using the 
aged old system of placing AOtes on a Stave, If 
you've ever used a pnsgram like Electronic Ms' 
Deluxe Music or Aegis' Sonix, then you'li feel 
initarttly at home. Not only tha^ but the Snclu- 
sijon of } score editor makes the task of entering 
music from a printed score far easier for the 
beginner. 

Although OctaMED supports Midi, ii wa^ pri- 
marily designed as a lound chi^ sequencer, it can 
'Use tw5 types of Amiga-gefierated instruments - 
raw samples and "synthestsed" sounds created 
usirtg OctaMED's synthesiser module. Obviousily 
sampled instruments wiij sound the best, but 
they hawe one ma|or disadvantage - they gobble 



large amounts of RAM, Synthesised instmments 
take up only a few byes of RAM, so it's often 
wortti trying to create a synthesised version of a 
sampled instmment before you devote yourself 
to one or the other. 

That's not to say synthesised sounds are a 
poor substitute, if you're Into those lovely 
squelchy analogue sounds made famous by such 
classic synths as the Moog and the OSCar, you'll 
love the sounds this powerful rrHjduie can create. 
With the popularity of such styles of music as 
Acid HoLise, I can see this module being particu- 
lar popular. 

Even sample-based instruments can be manip- 
ulated within OctaMED thanks to its built in sam- 
ple editor. In true AudioM aster fashion, the 
instrument's waveform is displayed graphically 
allowing you to cut, copy and paste sections of 
sample to your heart's delight Vou Can also cary 
oul some quite advanced editing operations such 
as adding echo to a samp)?, reversing it, mixing 
twf? samples together and a bt more besides. If 
you Own your own sampler, you can even grab 
lamptes directly Into the program! 

Having already used several commertial sound 
chip sequencers, I must admit I was very 
impressed by OctaMED. It doesn't quite offer tfie 
levd of tontrol Over compositions that something 
like Demonware's TFMX can offer, but what it 
does offer should be nwre than enough for most 
people's needs. Author Teiio Kinnunen has mart- 
aged to produce a music composition system 
comprehensive enough for the hardened music 
pro but sas/ enough to use for even the greenest 
of users. 

Fof the price, OctaMED represents one of the 
few real bargains available for the Amiga. 
Whether you're producing Amiga music for profit 
or for fun, OctaMED is the tod that you should 
be using. Forget Sound Tracker, forget TFMX and 
Quartet - buy yourself a copy of OctaMED now.

The game 

Last month we saw how to get the good guy 

under joystick control wkI how to make the had 
guy fotlow him. This month -we will take a look at 
how to put a maze up or the 5cr«er . 

OK, if you look at tf>e screenshot ofi this page 
you should spot 3 nice picture of some maic 
blocks. In fact there are eight in total, four comers, 
two straight pieces, a sm^ll bleb thing and a col- 
lectable pill (was Pacman a junbeT). 

Wfiy use ijtocks to build up a maae? The answer 
is slrnple - a^exibility. By using blocks we can gen- 
erate lots of different maiei using up only a (lac- 
tioo of tine rnenwry that a picture would take up, 

H you talce another bok at the picture o( the 
blodu you will notice they hove numbers under^ 
neath- TTieK will be used to build up oor mazes.. 
For exampte to build up i simple bonder we would 
use the lollowing data; 






mi, 

llTt 

Hn

nn "4 

IITk '4 

*m "4 

tm •mimimiiinmt' 



The number one neprWeriti the top left-hand cor- 
ner and ttiE number siii represents the bottom- 
right. 

To display tbis onscteen requires a iittie mone 
wofk. The first thing to do is to dimension an anay 
to hold the maze 
data. As eacfi block 
is \6ii.\6 pi!«e1s our 
maze can only be 
made up of 20 
blecki across and 
1 2 blocks down. 
Because we are 
going to hold the 
block numbers in a 
stnng array we onijH 
n*ed to diimension 
it to eleven ele- 
ments; 



o:a 



The next ilep Is ty 
open up a iowret 



Peter Hickman guides you through the twists and 
turns of adding a maze to last month's game 



screen and clear it ready for drawing:

I h»ti allready prepared an icon bank for you on 
the Co^efDisk which must be loaded Into this list- 
ing before it will work: 

Things start to get a little more compkx now. First 
we must read in a line of our maze data; 

|f|ir LOf'O Id 11

Next we haw to look at each part of that string to 
find out wtiat tnaje block we would like to posi- 
tion on the screen at the newt point;

I always like to be carefuf when wn'tifig somethiing 
like this. It is very easy to mistype a character so It 
is always worth putting a check in for strange val- 
ues. Using this method we can automatical^ gen- 
erate spaces in the maze if we want them whilst 
avoiding any emar messages which AMOS wouW 
throw up if we tried to dBplay an icon that did not 
eKist;

Emmm- Wliat nest? Well, it's a bit of a suqpfise 
actually. Tbe method I have [ust showed y^w to 
draw the maze screens is OK, but we need a quick 
way to look at the msze shape to find out where 
the blacks are, 

Tbis way we can contneJ tfie mavemert of any 
creatures we decide to put into the maze without 
resorting to slow and compieK collision detection 
cofnmands, 

5o we will now put all of flK data needed to 
create a ma^e into an AMOS memory bank whldi 
will be 240 bytes lofig (20 blocks wide x i 2 blocks 
tall)i 

tntttit if Vnrli 10,340 

We now have to set up that hinky fcrwn and bad 
those icons again:

This time we will read the data into memory bank

Take note of the formula that is used to calculate 
the position of each block - we wBI use a ilightiy 
adapted version oif Ws for colibion delectiofi;

Once that Is stored we can draw the screen by 
readirtg l}>e data- 
Simple lormula timef Next month when we 
Start to move our pacman around Itie maze, and 
will need a routine to make sure it does not career 
intQ any wails. We can find this out by constartty 
keeping a track of the position of our pacman and 
then using the following formulae to see if any 
walls block its path:

CODE CLINIC 



Dynamic 



Amiga Computifig's Cftds Clink brings 
yoii a dynamic meny which uses the 
Menu ithitturs as a font neqiiestef. It 
is pa»ibl« 10 read all the available lonis Irom the 
fonts directory and put the font names into iti 
menjflerni ind heights inrto its Subil«rni. This 
meafii that a toit can b& clioifin tram ttie menu 
VMithQut its narrve or size b«ing hard coded in the 
fHiagram, 

Loads of memory 

I set up a menu called "10 AD FONT" after the 
Style Menu. This wai the last menL on ttie menu 
bar, and I set the Hirst menu item to NULL, in 
case there were no fonts in the directory. 
Assuming a majtimum of 70 different liie and 
font name combinations, 1 set up my arrays; 

Twenty Menultems, one 

for each font name 
An WT»y of 20 strings of 

K) characters for the 

font names 
Fifty Stibltems, one fof 

each font size or num- 
ber 
An array of 50 strings of 4 

character! for the font 

numbers 
Seventy IritufTeictSj one 

for each Metiultem w 

Subltem 

1 allocated memory of 2,000 hytes for the 
/^vaitFontsHeader structure. The amount of 
memwy needed was hard coded, ijut could be 
adjusted if more or fewer fonts were expected. 

Availability 

With the avaiiltontsi[) routine in menugad.c I used 
ttw Diskfont Library Avail Fonts commarvd to read 
in the data from the avaiiable disk fonts on the 

boot disl<- 5f there were more than the Tflanimum 



Margaret Stanger makes fonts the chef's speciality 



rumtser of items, I set the number of items to 
the nia>iimum. 

For each item I derived the Ascii character 
jtrtng for the height erf the font, aind stored it in 
the availfontnumber array viiith the numbH' of 
the Menultem. An IntjiTesit structure was set up 
for this subitem, with the IText pointing to the 
correct pjice in the a vailfontn timber array. I 
filled in a Subltem slrutture for each item, 
increasing the vertical start position each time, 
and linking each Subltenj to the next one. 

Is the name the same? 

tf the nan^e of the font differed from the previ- 
ous name, I stored the name of the new font in 
the availfentname array, but without the file 
extension ".font" as it was rtot needed for tfw 
menu tejit. I set up an IntuFTeKl itnjcture point- 
ing to the name in the array, and a fylenoltem 
structure with increasing vertical offset, and * 
link to the next Menuitem. 

Th* name of the font was slered, tor compari- 
son next time, and Iheie v^re a couple of adjyst- 
ments to be made to the latest t¥vo Subltems. 
The previous iubjtem i^as now the last one for 
the previous font name, and had to have its 
Nextltem made NULL Th« current Subltem 
would be the first one for the new Menultem 
artd have a vertical offset of -1 , 

Last of the line 

For the very last item, the Subltem and the 

Menultem needed their Nesttltem pointer^ set to 
NULL. The font M^nu (fy1enu2} could then be 
linked to the first Menultem, all in place for 
(iVhen the fvlenu Strip was set. The Cumerd default 
font name was saved, and the nwmory for the 
AVailFontsHeader ilmcture freed. 

The display was set up with i second window 
to display the text in, this window has its own 





What the program does 

The program on the support disk demonstrates a dynamic menu with nwnu items for the fonts 
and sub items for all their sizes. The program exits with a message if the diskfonl Hbrary fails to 
open, this usuaJly happens if the file dfOJibs/diskfonLlibrary is absent. The prnjgram exits with a 
message if the directoey dfOifonts is missing. An empty fonts directory will not cause the program 
to exJl or fa1i over. 

A main window is opened with one gadget, so that yoc can quit when you get bored with the 
program. The text window for the text display is fai'ly smalL but could be made any siie. Thefe is a 
menu offering three mutually exclusive text styles, a text string is re-displayed each time the style 
or font is changied. The second menu has an item for each font in the fonts directory on the boot 

disc. 

The subitems are the si^^s available in the ctmsen font. When a font and sue are chosen, the 
menuitems and stJbltems are marked.and the text string is displayed in the chosen font if it is still 
there, If the font is not available, a message will be on the calling screen, and the text will not 

change. 

There shouW Ije the executable code, and source for the main program and for the gadgets, all 
in the code clinic directory. The diskfont library should be in the libs directory, and the gamet and 
sapphire fonts in the fonts directoiy, but there wasn't enough space available on the support disk. ^ 



BitMap and fiastPort, separate from the main 
screen. This enabled me Do keep the fslenu dis- 
play in the default topaz font, independent of 
the fancy font tejd display. A Menu can hiok very 
untidy if its text is in Gothic scrtpt 

Retrieval 

If a Menultem or Subltem was chosen from the 
LOAOf ONTS Menu, i used the ftndfonU(obiect) 
routine in menugad.c to extract the name and 
sjze of the font, First I checked for Subltem selec- 
tion - if no:ne were selected the routine would 
end. Otherwise the height ol the font was found 
from its place in the availfontnumberarray. 

The number of the Menultem was also found 
from the availfontnumber array, this could be 
used to find the font name fnom the availlont- 
name array, I added the ".font" extension to the 
name. This data was used as input to the 
changefontsO routine where the TextAttr itruc- 
ture would need the name and height of the 
Disk Font before it could attempt to load th« 
font, (or nearest available font) from disk, 

The changefonts routine attached the font to 
the Text Window RastPort, and re-diiplayed the 
text string in the chosen font. All that was neces- 
sary then was for the font name to be stored for 
comparison next time, and lot the check maris 
to be adjusted for the selected items, It w&uld be 
possible to insert a requester here to make sure 
that the user really wants to change the font - if 
he decides to stay with the current fonts the 
cbeelt marks can be left as th-ey are. 

Portability 

As tong as the diskfont library and the fonts 
directory are in theit place on your Workbench 
disk, this month's support program will display 
dny available fonts on the menu and enable you 
to select one of them- Unfortunateiy, there 
wasn''t enough space on the disk this month for 
these files, so you'll have to transfer the program 
to a disk which has them. 

For a really massive font, more than 30 pixels 
high, the text window would need to be bigger. 
The routines for putting the data in the menu 
structures, and selecting a font could be added 
to most programs, 1 have only allowed for up to 
20 different font names, and up to 50 sizes, but 
the array sizes could be adjusted to fit the 
expected font data. 



COMING SOON: The next few Code Clinics 
will be devoted to sound production on 
the Amiga, The Machine Code page of 
Almanac will be amalgainated with the 
Code Clinic page In the magazine. The 
support disk wiil contain both C and 
Assembler source code, fully documented, 
as before.

DTP 



Scaling clip 



For the lait couple at hsjm or so this DTP 
page has been discusiing g-eneral pub- 
lisfiing tecfinkHiK - it's time we got hack 
to Amiga specifics. This nicwith we're going to 
loot at bitmapped blick and white clip art and 
how to get the beiiL out of H- 

First w« need to understand what 
"■bitmapped" dip art ii. Usually it is- artworit cne- 
ated by scafinifkg i picture of drawing, altlwjgh 
jt can al» l>e someliiing you have drawn us^ng a 
paint package, (t is saved in the standard IFF 
ILE^M format, and no matter how big or small the 
picture i^. Hi resolution wili be 75 dots per inch, 
Thii number is important. Remember it, 

Mow yoti don't need me to teli yoj that 7S 
dpi is not a very high resolution, Anything- output 
at 7S dpi wiil have jagged lines iW ovier the place 
in^ look extremely amateur. But iby using DTP 
software thete is a way of increasing the bitmap's 
resolution so that it gets printed at the best reso- 
lution your printer can manage. I'm talking about 
scaling. 

Scaling not oniy changes the size of ttie 
bitmap, it changes its resolution. I'll run thnfHigh 
a iimple example using round figures to show 
you wh9l I mean, let's say we're using a black 
and white bitmap gleaned from a clip art disk. It's 
a normal' 640 by 51? hi-res screen, We want to 
outpLt Ehts picture to our [Jeskjet printer at its 
majtimum iresolution of 300 dpi. 

So we know that the bilfnap has a r^soluBor 
of ?S dots per inch and th« pkcture is 640 dots 
(or pixels) wide. Converting the dots to inchei 
(M0/7S) gives us a rtieas-Ufement of jujt over 8.5 
Ifichei, That's how wide the picture would be i^

Ben Pointer tells you how to produce 
better resolution bitmaps 



we printed it at its o-nginal resolirtion. If we scale 
Gis picture down by half, changing its width to 
about 4,2S inclie^j we've doubled its resolution 
to T50 dpi because we tiave the same numbef of 
dots in half the width. Scale it by hall again, mak- 
ing the bitmap only 25 per cent as big as the 
original, and we've increased its resdulion to iOO 
dpi, 

The price we've paid is siize. To output the 
bitmap at 300 dots per inch we've had to sc^le it 
so that it ]i only about two inches wide. We can't 
have it four inches wide and 300 dpi, r»or three 
inches, nor anything else - it has to be two 
inches if we wart to output it at JOO dpi. 

Scanners 

OKj those were approximate measuremertts. \n 
practice the numbers are slightly different. The 
way to get larger high resolution bitmaps into 
your documents is to use a Scanner. Hand scan- 
ners are typkally about four inches wide and scan 
pictures in at a maximum of 400 doll per Inch - 
so a maximum width scan would be about 4 .x 
400 or f 600 piixels wide. 

It gets a bit confusing now. Despite being 
scanned in at 400 dpi, the graphics are still sa^^ 
as IFF bitmaps^ which have a cotvstant resQlution 
of 75 dpi. So if we imported our scan into a DTP 
package, at its bitmap reschlution it would be

l^S) / 75 = 2t.J inches wide, Scale it down by a 
quarter (21 .3 divided by four) arid we get a JOO 

dpi picture that is just over five irwhes wide,. 

But w'hat if our pInter can't do 300 dpi? What 
if if 3 3^0 dpi, ai most 24-pin dot matrix printers 
are these days? The answer ii that we have to 
scale the bitmap down a bit more. To artiwe at 
300 dpi we scaled by 25 per cent. 
Mathematically we arrived at that figure by multr< 
plying 7S by 4 to get 3O0. The four H the impor- 
tant bit because it is this numlber we divide into 
1 OO to get our scaling percentage - 100 divided 
by 4 = 25, OK? 

So to get the scaling percentage for 36D dpi 
we first have to work out what to multiply 75 by 
to anive at 360. This we do by dividing, 360 by 
75, which gives us a figure of A A. Dividing 100 
by 4.B gives us a scaling percentage of 2fiA to 
one decimal place. 

Now I've only been talking about width SO far, 
but everything is the Same for height p* ovided the 
bitmap is at least 640 by 512 pixels, or an inter- 
laced hi-res screen in other words. If it's not inter- 
laced (256 pi»tels high), then either double the 
height (oi V) scaling to compensate, or use a util- 
ity to alter the bitmap's resolution. DPaint will do 
it nicely; simply choose the Pin^ture/Screefi: Format 
menu option and select the bottom button, 640 % 
512. When it asks you if you want the Image 
stretched to (iil the page, say Yes - otherwise 
yoall end up with a sjquashed looking picture. 

These scaling techniques apply to ail Amiga 
bitmapped If F ILBMs, by the way, not fust black 
and white clip art. The thing to remember is that 
when scaling to the mawnrtum resolution of your 
printer you are not losing any dots from the 
graphic - each dot ii merely getting smaller and 
smaller. It may b^gin to look a bit "sketchy" 
onscreen, but the printout will be fine. 

Seated down 

Howevefj iff you scale to above the maKimum res- 
olution d your printer, reduce to 1 5 per cent say, 
then the printer hai to start removing dots from 
the picture to beabk to print It that small. Which 
dots it removes is in the lap of the Cods - wefl, 
actually it's in the lap of whoever built the 
prirtef, )?ut Sod's Law says it wili be exactly those 
dots you don't want it to remove. So if you've 
got a 300 -dj^ printer treat 25 per cent as a maxi- 
mum scaling figure, and 20.8 per cent for S. 160 
dpi phnter. 

If your pririter has an uneven resolution - most 
nine pins are 240 by H4 dpi, for example - then 
you hav« to take the lowest of those figures as 
youf maximuinn- resolution. That's your homewwk 
tof this month. The aniwer ts below, upside 
down, tio cheating!:

claim i Hrrt. Whereas quite a few CDTV titles are 
converted from prcvioLJiy pubiistved books, the 
Timetable isries will be published in paper Iwm 
in 1 992, sfter tiw CDTV versions- 

Art& leisure? 

On the "art wvi lesure" side of CDTV this month 

we have 'Advanced Military System's", by 
Dominion Software and Design, USA, Quite what 
these modern military machines have to do with 
either art or leisure is not enpiained, This title 
gives us a brief audio description and lots o( 
pretty pictures d several of the worlds lavounie 
killing machines. 

Each of them has its own music too, ttwrs is 
some Top Gun style rock music to go aiong with 
the US F-1S Eagle fighter, and plenty of sinister 
music to go along with the Soviet tanks and air- 
craft. The picture quality is excellent, the HAM 
interlace images have to be some of the best on 
the Amiga, they were digitised with the Video 
Toaster, and are as good as any HAM-E or 
CoHourbUFst pictun? i have seen, 

Although the user interlatce is not quite up to 
the Xiphias standard, it is quite usabi.e, except 



that some of the merms judder when connected 
to a television or composite monitor for no 
apparent reason, It appears to be a fault with the 
modulator design rather than with this title. 

Jellybean 

The last ol this month's CDTV titles ii CD-Remia by 
Microdeai, the only UK disJi revievhfed this month, 
CD Bemix, m the words from the back of the bow, 
lets you "take your favourite iVtusic CD and rese^ 
quence pieces ol it to mak« your own extended 
d^nce tracks or personal remixes." It's a great idej^, 
but unfortunatriy it doesn't work very weil. 

Firstly the user control is awful, filenames for 
samples have to be entered a letter at a tnme in 
the same way as names are entered in game 
high-tcore tables. Why a file requester couldn't 
have been used is beyond me. The other faults 
are mainly due to ttw seek time on CDs. Vou just 
cannot jump from one part o< a song to another 
without a noticeable gap- 

This is not Microdeai's fault, and considering 
the problems they have done quite well in trying 
to get around this- What is Microdeal's fault Is the 
stupid design of the product Vou cannot start a 
CD track and play a sample in the middle of it. 
Vou can play the first half. Stop the CD, play the 
sample and then ilart the CD again. You get i 
horrible glitch and it sounds awful. 

lust to malte s*jre it wasn't me, 1 borrowed the 
M^dwna CD used for the demonstration files on 
the disk. These sounded aw!ui. if this was the 
best the people who wrote the program could 
do, then i don't liold up much hope for it. Don't 
waste j'our money on CD-Remi)!.,

action in the Persian Gulf. 



Feel the excitement of being at the seat of a jet 
capable of climbing to 30,000 feet in less than two 
minutes and test youi skill at firing deadly missiles 
during dog fights with enemy jets. 



Unlike other programs, ProFlight doesn't forget its primary role as a 
simulator and its secondary job of being a shoot- 'em-up, made accurate by 
using exact flight equations to mathematically model the flight of the aircraft 
and its missiles. 



You are tested at everything real pilots face each day but helped in your task 
with a comprehensive manual 
written by a Tornado expert>
